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.
The first painting needs a bit of polish then it will be complete. The middle painting is completed, though the photo doesn't do it justice.The lights,particularly the whites, are not that prominent. I am still working on the last painting;need to add stamens and darks.All three paintings have been painted over and over transforming into new paintings with each attempt. I feel it is the only way that i can learn how to paint with acrylics,by taking chances. Happy Holidays! Hoping to post more in DEC.:)
