Today I completed Tag 56, attempt #3. I believe it's a 16x20. My previous attempts were 24x24, but I wanted less expanse on this one. Pictured below is about as loose a brushwork I can get without going all out abstract. I may do some tweaking to this piece this week after looking at it on the wall for a few days...that's how I truly know if a painting is complete or not.
Here are some photos of the piece in process:
Here's the completed piece (I think?) after adding some Green Gold and getting some drippy paint going in the background. Some accidentally began to run so I just sat back and let the paint go where it wants to. See Mom, I'm not a control freak after all!
Lastly, I firmed up some highlights with unbleached titanium and more Payne's grey as well as the turquoise where I needed more color. To finish it off, I did the cow's eyes. That is the absolute worst part in my opinion because the eyes are so important and I didn't want to ruin them.
Thank you so much for plugging along with me and a hearty hello to Perth, Australia and my new viewer in the Rhone region of Germany! Send me some wine? Please?
