First painting in ‘Growth’ series finished.
Growth l – Acrylic on board
Wow, I didn’t realize how long it is since I last wrote a post! I’ve been getting ready for my exhibition which I have happening during September. I would be delighted if you could come along. If you are in the area and would like to come to the private view you are most welcome! 🙂
I have been in the process of doing this painting for a while and revisited it yesterday.
I had bought some new paint and added a very dark hookers green and a cyan to the centre circular shape. One of the things I’ve been learning is that sometimes taking away is as valuable as adding. The centre of the painting was drawing me to it and so this is what I did! And wow, it all sprung to life and I love all the colours shining though the top layer of paint! So here is ‘As Yet Untitled’ (I thought of a name as I was painting but it has faded away just at the moment!) 🙂
For this piece I have planned the colour layout in my art journal. To the side I am putting the colours I am actually using for the painting.
As you can see, painting does not need to cost a lot. Here I’m using an old printed canvas I bought from a charity shop! I don’t know why I started with green, it just took my fancy, if you want to paint, just enjoy it, there are no rules!
Next, blue 🙂
Next, red. If you look carefully you can see I where I put it in the wrong place. with a canvas or board, just wipe it off while it’s still wet. If it’s dried, paint over it. Don’t discard the painting because of a mistake, the layering of paint adds something to the finished piece! 🙂
Untitled – four purple triangles – 76 cm x 76 cm – Acrylic on wood panelA lot of work has gone into this, I hope you love this as much as I do!
Another painting finished. This one has had several incarnations before this. It had a finished painting on it and then I wanted to paint over it because it had been around for a while. It got painted over more than once in the process of producing this final piece.
