Our group got together last week and did some of the experimental painting techniques that I have been trying out.
Everybody got right to work and created some “master pieces”.
These are the pieces as they are drying. Everybody, even with experimental kind of methods, has a different look to their work. Next time we meet, we are going to work further into some of these pieces to finish them. It will be interesting to see how they turn out.
Here is one of mine after I worked into it. The piece on the left is what I started with after letting the watercolors dry. The piece on the left is after working into the painting to give it a bit more definition in places. It’s fun to figure out what needs to be added and when to stop. That’s probably the hardest part for me 🙂
It’s fascinating to see how the pictures develop – looking forward to next post!
Thanks Lyn, I never know how they are going to come out. Some better than others for sure!
Fun experiments! I really like your tree and look forward to how you finish it.
Thanks Marilyn, I think the tree is finished.
The painting looks like fun. Is the plastic wrap to create texture?
Thanks Antje, it was fun. And yes, the plastic wrap is to create texture.
I think the finished result looks great. One of my former tutors told me that you have to go too far to learn when to stop and that most people never get anywhere near that.
Thanks Kim! That’s good advice for sure. You just have to keep going most of the time. If you make it through the really ugly stage in the middle without quitting, you’re doing good.
