Day 12 of 100 days of painting.
Oh I completely forgot to mention that I’m working the layers on only one canvas, rather than alternating between two stretch canvasses. I really liked what I ended up painting on the second canvas, and decided to leave it as it was and not paint over it. Sometimes, the pieces that you paint on a moment’s inspiration are the best pieces.
I guess I could have started on a third canvas. Didn’t think of that…
Today is about simplifying with a single or a couple of neutral colours. This limited colour choice is meant to create unity – which it does. But you can also create unity and coherency by mixing new shades from the pigments you’ve already applied on the canvas.
