I waited a bit to let the oil on that painting set up a little more……….and it was way too blue. That said, I worked back into it with other values, etc. and I see some promise. I have determined that this board was just way too textured for me and it is giving me fits. I like texture but I like perceived, optical texture a little more than actual overall texture. I keep fighting it…. I need the contrast of some smooth area. I need the contrast. I need some large shapes extending from the picture plane……….hum. I turned it horizontally and it worked better for me.
For now, here it is…. there is more work to be done.
I seriously like this one! I think you are probably a couple of strokes from finish! I think the texture is really nice and I sort of like the calm colors with the active texture, it makes for a really interesting feeling…Very nice! Cannot wait to see what you do next to it!!!
LOL I can’t either… this morning I woke up, not knowing what in the heck to do next and feeling like I have forgotten how to paint.
