I’ve been working on a more subtle color palette. Purples and yellows are difficult.
I went to the store and was able to get reduced price tulips. The clerk told me she couldn’t sell them for someone as a gift, but since they were for artwork she could give me a really good deal. I wanted yellow so that was great. The white lilies make the yellow pop a bit sound got those too…
Then a color one. I completely lost the color in the background. It is the right tone, but too grey.
My work has been taking longer due to the new process, but the pieces are more fleshed out. It’s a lot less stressful to know what I’m doing when I’m looking at the bigger the blank canvas. I’m able to be freer with the work because I am more confident in my vision too.
This isn’t quite done yet. The background darks need to be deepened and the lights need more brushwork. I don’t want to over cook it, but it’s pretty far along… I’ll repost when it’s finished.
