I’m continuing to refine all the values in this painting and the drawing.
Now I’m making great headway on this painting but I’m having to fix a lot of values.
The second session of Paper Cross was more troublesome than I expected.
This is the fourth in what may be a long going series of paper paintings.
The second day on the Paper Chevron painting was very productive.
I’ve started on my next paper painting and for now I’m calling it Paper Chevron.
As the other figure sketch dries I start another one. Figure as landscape.
I have a whole stack of 8×10 canvases that I’m going to begin experimenting with.
On the days when my day is so full that I have very limited time I fall back to drawing.
Today was another day where art took a backseat to all the other items on my list.
On the days that I have more than 2 hours to paint I get a lot done.
Today was an “art walk” day, where I attempted to do art and walk 50,000 steps.
Today I pivoted back to working on Resurgence and I love how I changed up the background.
I didn’t have very much time t work on this painting today but I did what I could.
I’m changing the method for this painting by going thick, opaque and high value.
Daily art day #3000!! That is 8.2 years of consecutive days of art!
Work took up most of my time today but I still made time for art, at least an hour.
Two days in a row and I’ve finished two paintings.
A great day of painting! I was able to spend all kinds of focused time.
Today I moved back to the Paper Flame painting and began glazing in color.
I was able to get a bit more time in on art today than yesterday.
Another super busy day today and I’m rushing everywhere getting things done and rocking my day.
Today, and the rest of this week, was a busy day but I was able to get a good hour of work in on resurgence.
I got some good time in on resurgence today and was able to make huge progress.
Another day full of art time! I could lose myself in painting or drawing easily now.
I spent lots of time painting today and taking this painting to the next stage.
Another very busy day but I was able to stick to my schedule and get some good art time in.
I had a super busy day today and was unable to spend as much time as I wanted painting.
The second day of glazing and this time I got the layer of color closer to what I want.
The first day of work employing what I’ve learned about glazing is a success!
Today was a morning of planning my next steps in multiple paintings.
I’ve changed the entire direction of this painting along with the figure.
I’ve finished this first stage of my paper flame painting and now put it away to dry.
After work today it’s nice sitting and calmly painting. It’s almost meditative.
I’ve moved back to my Paper Flame painting today as I’m waiting for the Knot painting to dry.
My art time was later in the day and I didn’t have quite as much energy as I would have liked.
This painting is moving along quickly because of my focus on it with the time that I have.
I’m loving this painting and regretting that I don’t have more time in the day to work on it.
Painting with deep focus after a good night of sleep is one of the most enjoyable things I could ever do.
Moving back to Resurgence this morning I’m excited to bathe the painting in intense hues.
I finished up all the black and value work on Paper Star today and I figured I try adding the next step to some dry…
A wonderful morning of painting and conversation with a fellow creator on the journey to mastery.
Much more work time than art time today and I’m a bit frustrated.
I have a day off work today and a long hike planned so I’m making progress however small on this painting.
Day seven on this painting and I’ve pulled out the smaller brushes.
Sunday early morning painting and I’m wonder how smooth is smooth enough.
This morning as I continue with the Paper Star painting I’m contemplating changing the title of these paintings.
I moved back to the Paper Star and begin refining it’s edges today.
