So where am I up to with current artworks?
After completing the last of the artworks in the Mythic Journey series, I took a short break while I was considering where to go next in terms of the work.
This however did not mean that I stopped painting. When unsure of what to paint it is often best to just keep painting. Well how does one do that? One way is to work totally intuitively. How does one begin that?
One way is to simply draw some lines on the canvas – like this.
And then begin throwing some colour at it. This drawing was the starting point for what turned out to be three different works, each of the subsequent works being based on the previous one. In the image below, I am working up a base using Acrylic paints.
More paint is added to the underpainting, still using Acrylics
Then I took out the oil paints and proceeded to work back into the painting, developing what I could see there already. You may have to look hard to see some of the changes as they are subtle.
And here is the finished work….
Some quite big changes can now be seen.
This Weeks Question: What works do you have in progress at the moment? Are you exploring any new techniques??
