Painting at the start.

I have started the under painting on one of my canvases. I’m looking for shapes that can be mirrored throughout the painting. I have an area of stripes that loosely runs the length of the canvas. Then there are three rectangles of colour that will be offset by the canvas that extends outward. Once I have everything blocked in I may build a layer of loose stripes across the solid blocks of colour.

My biggest problem is that I often get ahead of myself, and I try to see the finished painting, rather than just letting the painting happen. Start simply, build, follow, question, these are the things I should pay attention to.
