.This is painting in my favourite style.. the painting is done in a negative way by letting the positive shapes evolve from doing the negative ones…my most successful works have been done this way…see Ripe Cherries below, and many of my paintings of trees….
When he was by, the birds such pleasure took,
That some would sing, some other in their bills
Would bring him mulberries and ripe-red cherries
—Shakespeare’s Venus and Adonis.
