In my last post, I shared my first painting, which I finished back in November. Since then I’ve been struggling to find time for painting, but I’ve been chipping away at a similar piece that I think is a lot better. This past Saturday I allocated the entire day to painting, and made a bunch of progress.
I forgot to take photos in the very early stages of this painting, but I have a handful of WIP shots from Saturday. The painting is made with golden fluid acrylic paint on an 11×14″ wood panel that I gessoed and prepared myself.
I feel like it’s better than my first painting. Better in terms of composition, color strategy, cleanliness, and just overall technique.
This new piece isn’t quite finished, but I figure it’s done enough to post about. Next, I’m planning to work on improving the shadow effect to give the pattern some depth.
