Painting One Continues

Part Three

I was really having too much fun with the Pipettes here and the effect is getting rather chaotic.

I give more "breathing room" to the painting by adding warm grey to about two thirds of the painting.

When I added the grey, I accentuated some texture areas by using a squeegee to remove some of the grey, which also helped to bring a muted version of the original color back so the whole painting was not just one grey mass.  You can see the area of dark purple/grey that had fork marks previously is now very obscured and nearly disappears.

Adding back some blockier shapes for more interest and setting up for the center of interest.

  1. SUCH a gift to be invited in behind the "yellow curtain," so to speak, to see the process. I am just loving the chance to watch your art evolve and to learn some of what you do en route. Thank you!

  2. Thank you so much for following along, Dotty. See the 1/11 entry for the final product.
