Poppies Canvas -WIP

I got a good start on this one tonight

It’s definitely not done yet though and won’t be competed tonight. I need to let the first payers of paint dry. It’s going to go much more dreamy and faded, except for the poppies. I think anyways. These painting take on a life and mind of their own after a while. 

I can’t wait to see how it turns out. It’s as much a mystery to me as it is everyone else. 

The Ocean -WIP Canvas

Tonight’s piece  started out very bright. 

Bright golden yellow, phthalocyanine blue, grey, and black. Then I started adding white gesso in swirls and streaks. I covered the canvas in white which mixed with the wet colours underneath. I then started removing it in large stripes with my wedge catalyst tool (don’t worry, I didn’t waste the paint, it was used for a art journal page base). I added a little bit more white gesso as bright spots then sprayed it down heavily with water. 

I tilted the canvas to allow the water and paint to drop down it until I was happy. 

I’m not sure it’s done. I might add more to it. I do love this how it is though. I’m not sure. 

Late Night WIP

Tonight I’m working really late. This canvas is a work in progress. I’d like to do a bit more work tonight but, until the molding paste dries, my hands are tied. 

I think this one is going to turn out rather pretty. The base coat of paint is a nice mix of yellows and greens with a bit of brown and reds mixed in. 

I’m excited to see where this one eventually ends up!

Blue-Green Canvas, WIP Night Two

I’m liking how this is shaping up to be. Might do a bit of doodling on this one or add another layer of texture. I’m not sure just yet. 

There’s a lot of colour and texture added tonight. 

Oranges, yellows and more of the blues and greens. Texture was created with bubble wrap, inner tubes from paper towel, and splatters of paint. 

I really like it as is, but might go further. 

We will see!

Day 1 Purple Canvases, Material Post

I am not a fan of lost purples so these canvases were a challenge for me. However, today’s paintings aren’t done yet but I’m not wanting to make a ton of noise at midnight with the heat gun. I’ll finish them up tomorrow.  

 Materials Used:

  • Liquitex basics acrylic paint: dioxazine purple, prism purple, brilliant purple, deep violet, quinacridone magenta, light blue, phthalocyanine blue, Mars black
  • Liquitex professional gesso

 My painting dress. There is a reason I change before making art. I usually end up wearing it.
