Now I am realising why I’m doing these paintings! It’s not just about painting but about organisation and focus. Already paintings 2 and 3 have gone off track. I’ve not kept to the required process….
With the above painting I forgot to sketch the composition and premix the paint. I was rushing around and knew I only had an hour so I cut a few corners. The result is fine but next time I must follow the script
Well I did follow the script by sketching the composition first, which made a difference. I premixed the paint allowing me to look at the palette of colours before starting to paint. Then I decided to use a palette knife and everything changed. Interesting result but I must return to the process for the next one. (I think)
