I’m calling this a work in progress still because I’m not sure it’s done.
It’s changed quite a bit from last night. The flowers have much more colour to them (kinda loving them, no lie) and more depth. I took a very quick video of how I made one of them:
The bottom was made with a palette knife and layers of colours scraped over the canvas. I tried to keep it a very simple colour scheme. A couple shade of red, brown, black, two greens, yellow and white gesso. By blending them to various degrees it made the whole thing pretty interesting.
So I like how it is currently but I’m not sure it’s complete. I’m going to leave it on my desk for a while to see if I’m inspired to add more or change anything.
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.
Made some decent progress tonight on the green canvas.
I’m enjoying this one. I think some of my favourite canvases I end up making are the ones I spend the most time on.
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.
We will see!
Here is the link to today’s art.
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.
