I feel a little bit better today.
Yesterday I was feeling like the painting was embarrassing and weird. Today it’s just weird which I’m totally fine with!
So judging by the title have you figured out the premise? I plan on having a blast coming up with all sorts of patterns and designs.
I started the day off simply blocking all the spaces off with color. It’s great having a computer. Every once in a while I take a photo and put the painting up on my computer screen. This allows me to gain some distance from my painting. Since the painting is large, I don’t have much space to literally “back up”. It allows me to check the colors and patterns and gain perspective.
I was originally thinking the sky didn’t fit. It’s a totally different style of painting, but today it doesn’t bother me as much. I love days when the clouds seem aligned with the sun. The sunrise and sunset are in a halo of sun-glow. Somehow it works for me.
It’s pretty cool to see in real life. It’s large enough that you can focus in on different areas and roam around a bit. I love that in art, when you’re forced to wander.
I hope to finish this painting tomorrow. There is still quite a bit to do. I’ll cross my fingers!
