Neil Plotkin interviews painter Sydney Licht about her work and process.
Licht notes that "Well, with each painting it's a different story, like a different puzzle to solve. What shows through from underneath is the result of the process of finding the right hue and value relationships as a natural part of making the painting work. It's not premeditated. I don't paint on a colored ground. I start a painting with a palette knife, and that enables me to not get bogged down in details too quickly."
