I’m planning a new painting and today I started with a value study for it.
Today is my Birthday so I took it easy.
I spent most of my day working on tech stuff.
Today I spent more time on tech stuff for CreateQuest than art.
Back to the color study with the Paper Cross painting and a dark to light approach.
Lots of testing today and recommitting to trying to get this painting finished.
Color challenges and life challenges today and I’m trying to show up as best as I can.
I’m training hard to try and master color. It’s going to take a while!
I started studing color early this morning after my warm-up.
I didn’t make the same mistake as yesterday. I got my art done early!
Getting my art time in early, regardless of how I feel, is super important.
My second day of recovering from ear surgery and…
I’m awake super early and getting my art done before surgery.
Lots of color investigation and theory today!
I made a decision today to begin finishing some of these paintings that I have in progress.
Working slowly and accurately is faster than just painting fast.
Back to the painting of Amy today and I’m having some trouble.
Big day today for our entrepreneurial pursuits! CreateQuest is open for registration.
Not as much time on art as I would like today but I have other awesome projects!
I like my oil paints “dry”.
Today wasn’t the best day of production.
Neutralizing the first layers of the Rajiv Two painting.
A shorter art day because the power was off all day.
The painting looks super gray and bland.
Complementary and neutral colors are outside of my comfort zone.
Yesterday the second session on this painting was distracted by phone calls.
This morning I’m thinking of doors and corners.
I’m not writing up this feedback until the day after a wonder OFC session and hiking with Pattie.
I started a session today by correcting the drawing a bit as compared to Photoshop.
I didn’t get a second session on this painting today but I did get a 2 hour session in the morning.
The third painting of Rajiv went well but not as good as yesterday.
Today’s painting session worked really well! I followed the Purposeful Practice routine!
I put the paper paintings aside for a few days. I’m chasing another idea.
I’ve been working three days on the same section of this painting and I’m not sure it’s getting better.
I made some positive progress on Paper Cross and worked on a figure study.
I may have destroyed this painting but failure is a great teacher.
I moved back to the paper cross for today’s session and decided to work on it differently.
I may be done with the Paper Chevron painting. I need to live with it for a while.
I’m so close to finishing this painting!
Three hours of art on Paper Chevron today was very productive.
I got a little bit more work done on the paper chevron today.
The combination of less sleep, stress and too much to do today resulted in a minimum art day.
This may have been the most effective day I’ve had in weeks.
Today was so packed that I only had time for an extended gesture drawing.
I’m really enjoying taking my time on this painting and getting all the subtle colors and value right.
I didn’t get the greatest sleep last night but I was able to get some art in.
Today I moved back to the Paper Chevron painting.
Its time to put this painting in the closet and let this layer dry for a while.
