If anyone is reading this - especially from beginning to end....thinking it should be called "The Diary of a Mad Artist!" Hahahaha! Here I am again, dinking around trying to adjust myself to waiting patiently between 15+ layers - and only have the first 2 done - and that's not even the background! So far it's been kind of fun to play with the water and paint and try to get it darker in some wet areas and lighter in others - I think I'm putting down too much water to begin with - but it's only the first layer and have many opportunities between now and the end of time to fix them! So I've been playing - I've not yet mastered the "reflections in water" - this is an attempt, and I will do the same painting again starting with the reflections. Again, I put the 3 primary colors randomly on the background of the sand in the forefront and why I didn't just wait and do all the sand is beyond me! All good lessons! The Spanish moss - don't know if you can see the masking or not - many more layers to go - I'll keep playing with it just out of curiosity, but it's not a keeper either! Good thing it's a long time til Nov/Dec show, eh? Truthfully, I'm having a ball whether they come out right or not - and it's interesting listening to Susan in my head fighting with the other teachers who have sat their for so long! Here are the pictures of today's work:
