So here we have the same subject as last week handled differently.
Beginning with the drawing again…
and a working drawing for suggested different coloured underpainting…..
Then applying the paint this time using colour not too dissimilar from the under painting.
From this exercise you can see how the same subject can be painted quite differently indeed.It is fun to experiment with things like this – you never know just how things will turn out. But it is also a great way to launch, or drift really into an abstract concept – this image could certainly be pushed a lot further if I wanted to. This kind of painting is sometimes called colour blocking.
