|Day 1, I am using Liquitex Gloss Blending and Painting Medium and
like it. I like it better then dipping my brush in water to replenish.
It's the bright yellow green an purple combination of color that makes
this painting for me. It's hard to make this color in acrylics because
there is no opaque tube color like it. It's hard to make with translucent
||Day 2, I love this acrylic medium. It slows down the drying and
allows a slight amount of re-wetting so you and soften edges. I can touch
areas I never could before. It's really amazing! Something that was only
available to oil painters that know how to make
mediums. It's better then dipping into water because you never get too
much. I'm hooked, even though I lose a little opacity.
||Day 4, I don't believe it but I changed the painting to a morning
picture, it took from 8:30 to 2:00 just to white out the 3:00 colors. This
guy came by to see if his house was in the painting. Surprise! His house
is only noticeable in the morning, what the heck, I changed it. I'm here
for the fun of it. The longer I stay at this location the more purple will
show up in the background grove of trees. The morning sun is much cooler.
||Day 5, another oil painting with a knife this afternoon. I like this routine of acrylic in the morning and oil in the afternoon. This painting is 7.5x11, 04-24-03 |
|Day 5, I'm just about where I was on day 2. The only thing that
stays the same is the drawing. The light is from the opposite side and
every color is different. I cooled down all the light yellow-green areas
with a glaze of a light green tint. The Gloss Blending and Painting Medium
really came in handy.
Day 6, May 2, The afternoon's oil, about 100 yards away. From the main painting. 7.5x11.
Use more then one style of knife.
|Day 6, These are the morning colors. Compare the two.
||Day 3, afternoon colors. |
Day 7, That's a little photo color test bar I made at the bottom. This morning I captured the 7:30 light and shadows. This painting has seen some changes..
Day 9, 7:30, bright and early on location to finish this one.
The pale cool colors of morning.
