Following my attempt at a fairly detailed painting earlier (that I’m not especially happy with), I went to the other extreme this evening:
I planned a very simple image with a very straightforward range of colours : sap green, cerulean blue, alizarin crimson and payne’s grey. My first attempt involved way too much water and not enough colour, the above is my second attempt. I had to consciously stop myself from altering the path of the paint runs – I’m quite pleased with how they turned out. Tomorrow, I’ll try a similar style with a different palette. This is the kind of stress free painting that I really enjoy!
