Daily Art #2963

The first strokes of oil on my Paper Star painting and I’m figuring out the hue needed for an ethereal glow.

I started painting the lighter parts of the paper with several different color combination and ended up removing all that I tried in favor fore getting the darker areas blocked in first. I may wait till the black dries and try to work on the light area beginning with glazes.

Paper Star Painting


Basic daily warm-up.


What went well, what was awesome! Celebrate It!

Another night of great sleep and I’m focused and working hard on Sunday morning.

What needs work? What did you learn?

When dealing with subtle hues any black added to the mixture will turn it dead.

How am I going to Optimize moving forward?

See how glazes work when placed over black rather than being mixed within.
