I’m sort of liking this new painting. Again, it’s something I was playing around with — applying the paint using straight brushstrokes across the canvas rather than my usual more expressive manner. It has a landscape feel to it.
I overpainted one of the indigo washout pieces from yesterday. Here’s a detail:
I’m still not sure where this washout piece is going. It needs something more, but what? For some reason I was thinking of the color of the red safelights in the darkroom scenes from the movie “Blowup,” but this didn’t turn out that color of red. Glazes are like that. They dry a lot lighter.
