21°C, light westerly + sun
Despirately tired yesterday, hence no blog. Just had time to fix a bit on the Whitley that was bugging me then to bed.
Oil painting today: It’s funny the phases you go through making a painting. It’s comparable to a relationship, the first phase is usually the bit where I dislike it. After the second oily layer though I usually start to like the picture. the relationship continues because some of the most important artistic decisions are not made while painting.
I usually pick up paintings while in progress to look at, to consider and anticipate. It’s also good to look at the picture under a few different lighting conditions, especially sunlight, & north-light and maybe halogen.
Ten minutes ago was the end of an hour long painting session, muscial acompanyment was Kristin Hersch.
Picture post tomorrow, it’s too dark now to take a WIP shot.
