Another day full of art time! I could lose myself in painting or drawing easily now.
I’m back tot he resurgence painting and dealing with a fatal flaw in my plan for it. Originally I was going to build up this painting in glazing layers starting with super bright colors underneath and covering those layers with something closer to flesh tone thereby putting a “skin” over the light beneath. Unfortunately glazing with mostly white paint over high intensity colors looks very chalky even though I’m using zinc white a semi-transparent white.
The method is toning down the intensity a bit but I’m not achieving the look that I wanted. Now I’m attempting to use the same methods used in creating my painting of Patrick which consists mostly of semi-glazes.
Another challenge accepted!
What went well, what was awesome! Celebrate It!
Long day of art making!
What needs work? What did you learn?
Keep moving through the day to keep my energy up and track my time when working on art so I can slowly increase my endurance for longer hours.
How am I going to Optimize moving forward?
I’ll track my time working and slowly increase the deep focus time over months.
