¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 As I start Semester 2 of 2nd year I join Painting, having studied Intermedia 1st semester. My 1st task was to get my workspace into some assemblage of order. That was a completely thankless task that took 2 days of my life I will never get back. Looking at these images reminds me that I must paint that back wall and get rid of that hideous chandelier. Tasks for another day.
¶ 24 Leave a comment on paragraph 24 0 This was an acrylic paining in my sketch book that I didn’t much like. Revisited it with the addition of pastels (light green/ rust red and yellow) and think it has much improved it in less than 10 min.
¶ 26 Leave a comment on paragraph 26 0 Not sure about this – was a quick acrylic with pastel. had planned it as an under painting but stopped as think it is interesting as it is . Not sure however about the white strip and if I should do something with it.
¶ 28 Leave a comment on paragraph 28 0 This was an old painting that I didn’t like. I went back to to see if I could improve I actually think I have made it worse. It feels too much as a slope and not sure about the addition of oranges and yellows. Does it look like two different paintings?
¶ 39 Leave a comment on paragraph 39 0 This is the largest clod wax and oil painting I have done (103cm x 79cm). I wasn’t sure about it – I do tend to overwork pieces all too often. Anyway I decided to leave it a few days and come back. I actually think it is finished though not sure if it could do with more of a light source.
¶ 41 Leave a comment on paragraph 41 0 I decided to try and work with brighter colours on a larger scale based on works by The Group of 7. This is oil on board its 130 cm x 83cm. Mentioning earlier how I overwork a project, I am well on the way to achieving this.
¶ 45 Leave a comment on paragraph 45 0 This is where it is currently. Feck knows what I was thinking with those yellow and red blobs around the tree base. Why I have decided to put all that purple on the rocks is a mystery too. – I am walking away from this one at the moment befor I cause more damage.
