4090: Empowered Day 10

It’s covered! It’s not done, it’s nowhere near done, but all of the panel is covered with oil paint. It’s a nice milestone to look up to when creating a larger painting. Now all I have to do is wait for this to dry for several days and then I can begin working over top of it with more transparent and or opaque layers.
While I’m waiting for that to dry though, I’m not gonna sit idle. I have another painting that I’m super excited about and I already have a panel made for it so I’m gonna be starting that as well. In fact, I have already started getting the panel gessoed.


I’m still super excited about this painting and I even did further research today on how exactly I want her dress to look. You may notice that the top of the dress and the bottom of the dress are different colors. I’m not completely certain if I want to go with a warmer green or a cooler green, but the one thing I know is that this dress will be influenced a bunch by nature and the haphazard growth of plants. I feel like this whole painting is going to be full of organic patterns and will be a huge learning experience for me as well. I have to look at fire, skin, leaves, vines, grass, fabric, and all kinds of different textures. It’s just fantastic!
