beginnings of a painting
6x6, oil on board
The grisaille created by the subtractive method, I vigorously rubbed in paint and them removed with a rag and Q-tips. I do like working in this method as it focuses on big shapes and a more abstract nature.
The second photo is rubbed in color. If I do this step I find that it adds to transparency and overall color harmony. Tomorrow I will lay down a couch of linseed and OMS and paint the distant light and trees.
No I need to get ready for the reception. This afternoon my sister, my best friend and I dipped about 200 strawberries for the opening. It's a lucky thing I like to do.
