I thought I was done, turns out I wasn’t. Below you can see the first two sessions. A short GIF. The colors in this were difficult to show true. It is not pink, but mauve. And the mauve is evenly distributed from left to right, (you can see below, but it is showing darker than it is) Also, the streaking is not as prominent in person.
In the second session, I noticed I had some “holes”. Bare spots. I added more white. Something was still off so next I added sand. And finally more of the clay color. Better.
The soft tones are very calming to me. The darks add a nice pop of contrast. I love that the texture of the canvas is showing. It catches the paint off the palette knife in a nice pattern.
This isn’t the painting I intended to post today. At the top of my blog page I tell you that I will even share my failures here. I will share the fiasco I worked on today. I am going to try again tomorrow. Hoping that I will have a good painting to show along with the ugly.
Happy creating to you!
