A few paintings that i have been working on. My favorite is painting in the middle-an abstract of flowers. The bottom painting of flowers is rather disappointing. I will continue to make changes to it since it is not complete and far from satisfactory. I posted it to show the before and after-if in fact there is an after!
This morning i decided i didn't care for the defined shapes in the bottom painting . I worked on the painting keeping that in mind and i am more satisfied with the feel of the painting at the top,which is a good thing since the bottom painting is gone. I worked with a bigger brush and at times applied and then wiped away the paint,all the while trying to find the painting that exited in my mind's eye. Now off to walk the dogs. Oh and fix my pants,i put them on inside out this morning, in my haste to paint, good thing i didn't go out in public:)
A bit of a still life along with a painting. Today i worked on composition, value, and meaningful brush strokes. I need to go back and work on the blue area on the left hand side;i was pushing a lot of wet paint around and needed to be more patient and wait for the paint to dry before adding color. I go back and forth with lost and found edges, lately i seem to be painting defined shapes.
