End of wet-on-wet demo

I continued to work on making the frames more obvious, while at the same time linking the outside with the inside. I still don't think it is working -time to put on my 'what would happen if' hat...
I glazed a mixture of Quin Rose and Ultramarine blue over the outside frame, which definitely helped to separate the 2 frames, but I think the stripe connecting the 2 frames isn't working, so...

it gets a glaze also. This is working better, but it still doesn't have the look I was hoping for. This is a difficult format to work with when you aren't doing a landscape as it is so long and narrow (11" x 30"). It does work better when cropped into two individual paintings though. I think each one still needs something -perhaps I will go back into them with some pastels or pencil crayons, or collage -or just rip them up for future collage purposes???? Nothing is lost as each painting exercise, whether or not the final product is good, is a good learning experience.


So here they are as individual paintings; what do you think?



Enjoy!

making two out of one was the way to go. you put a lot of work into it and can be happy with the painting, especially the lovely colours,
