Working on my new painting
I first draw a grid on the canvas and then copy my preliminary sketch using a pencil. I begin painting by adding large color areas. These color areas will be altered as the painting progresses, you can't quite tell what's happening until the whole canvas is covered with color as the values affect each other. I'm gradually getting the canvas covered and will be better able to judge just what the color tones should be. At this stage I have already changes many of the colors and values, the painting is now underway, although more alterations will follow before the painting is finished. On my next post you will see the finished painting.
