Working on a new painting during worship. Its not done yet, and may entirely change. This is done on 18×24, 140 lb, cold press watercolor paper. I wanted it to be playful, spontaneous, and whimsical….Its likely to change entirely.
Its evolving. Perhaps now it looks a little heavier, but its not done. I will go back and forth adding more layers and tweaking it until I get it just the way I like it. I absolutely love layers and collage. Right now, its 1:15am, and it’s hard to stop right here. I want to add some white painter pens. I may also add more gelatos. I seriously want to add oil pastels too, but if I do I will need to go back over it with clear gesso….maybe???? Or maybe not…it depends in what I add on top of that.
Well, I couldn’t leave it like that. It bothered me too much. I sometimes get driven, and it’s hard to stop. I just added some white and yellow oil pastel. I moved my art to my bed and now I’m working from there. It’s now 1:44am and I’m debating if I should go to sleep or add some white painter pens. I think the white painter pen is calling to me.
I have church tomorrow morning and don’t want to overdo it, and stay up to late. Lord, help me.
I’m enjoying be able to show more of my process here.
Hmmmm…Back and forth I go. Its now 3:40 am, and I definitely need to go to sleep. My art making time was very sweet and very soothing. Tomorrow will be a new day with fresh eyes.
