Painting 2, contd. Dec 18
So, almost done with this painting. I like how its turning out. I still have to work on the right side of the painting- behind the right figure. And, adjust some of the colour by her elbow. Done with this piece after that. I’ve worked out some drawings for the next 3 pieces that I want to do. Continuing on the theme of figures relating to one another in fields of colour. I’m working toward abstracting the backgrounds, so that everything looks like time stilled..No references of real places.. just hints of where the viewer thinks it could be.
What do you think? Does this piece work?
Next week I’ll post the finished piece and maybe a couple of rough drawings – thumbnails really. I want to get back into drawing directly on the painting surface as opposed to drawing a finished piece on paper first, and then transferring to the canvas/wood. I think this will loosen my hand more, and give the painting more movement – well, I’m hoping. Comments ladies?
Also, Can you tell me what you think of the approach to this piece versus the first piece? Which ones more successful in your opinion and why? I’m trying to work more “maturely” with colour.
thanks for the feedback!
