Daily Art #2957

This morning I put my first layer of oil paint on the canvas and intentionally kept it as intense as possible.

These layers are preparation for subsequent layers and I hope that they will bleed through the following strokes and create a vibrancy from beneath.

Knot-Phoenix Study


The basic warm-up.


What went well, what was awesome! Celebrate It!

Started actually painting!

What needs work? What did you learn?

I’m making notes as I’m working on this painting and plan to culminate them into one place.

How am I going to Optimize moving forward?

Continue as I am, keep it consistent.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
