Getting my groove back
I finished a new painting today. This is my first real painting in two years (!!) and it feels great to be back at it. I have another one in the sketching stage and am working on ideas for a series that will be rather different in style, but hopefully just as fun to do!
I used a palette of cadmium red, pthalo blue, cadmium yellow and titanium white. I learned a few things along the way (such as the importance of making sure the drawing is really right before starting to paint!) and hopefully the next one will be better.
I took some photos of the progression… this was over about two weeks, although actual painting time was probably about five hours. You might notice my favourite hardware store/house painting brush on the easel in the last picture… I use it a lot, other than for really small details.
Hope you like the slide show!
