Been busy in the “studio” the past few days. So busy I actually forgot to post something yesterday! Not a bad thing though.
I’ve finished a lot of started things and created some new paintings. Pulled out three oils that I started years ago and decided to work on them simultaneously. One I feel is complete and the other two I am going to add some final details to. When I finished cleaning up the oil mess..love oils hate the clean up still, this under painting from the other day was glaring at me begging to be completed and put away! Didn’t want to get out the water solubles, which is what I intended to use for this one, so came up with a plan B. Oil pastels, love working with them so figured what the heck! Not thrilled with this painting but I guess it’s okay. I’ll call it an experiment in impressionism painting!
Here is the under painting of just the acrylics.
Not really much difference now that I look at them!
Remember I started out with the messed up watercolor paper that I gesso’ed, under painting of acrylics, because it wasn’t acceptable as an acrylic, was going to be a water soluble oil finished painting but ended up going with oil pastels! Measures 9 x 12.
Did some watercolors, just because I love working with them and hope to one day be more consistent and comfortable with them! Such a tough medium to control and ever hope to master!
Until next time…..paint like no one will ever see your work and only you need to love it!
