3548: Starry Night Day 11

I’ve realized that this second layer needs to start out with somewhat complex brush work to get the overall form of each shape in the sky establish. This determines the shape, how it flows and connects with other shapes and the depth of each shape. But, this can’t be the last layer. It needs at least a third, maybe even a fourth layer, of glazing to increase that complexity and interest. Every time I come back and add more glazing it compounds the dynamism.

Needless to say, I’m having a lot of fun with this painting and it’s going to take a while before I’m done. I’m cool with that as well.
