Fall Leaves, In Progress
Ok, I am back at the leaves. This is where I left off in the last class of the workshop 2 weeks ago. I find that if I wait too long to work on a painting, I loose creative momentum. So much of a painting is enthusiasm; if I stop too long or think about it too hard, the excitement fades. Depending on the complexity of a painting and drawing, I will usually finish a painting in a week. However, I had another reason for my delay; supplies. I have decided to mount the 2 leaves paintings on clayboard and then add metallic pigment embellishments before varnishing. Now that my supplies are in, time to get back to painting.
