Did this painting last night. I call it Clouds 01. It is acrylic on 8×10 gesso panel. I am still learning acrylics and think this one came out much better than my past efforts. I am getting ready to start another one and should have it finished tonight. I’m going to test my skills on a canvas panel and see how that works.
EDIT: As I look more and more at this painting, I am not too pleased with the angle of the clouds as I moved across the “canvas” to the left and I realized that I was sitting off to one side of the painting as I was doing it. Why I was doing that I don’t know, but I can say that is probably why the clouds started going vertical instead of horizontal. And it’s something I didn’t even notice until this morning when I was looking at the painting. I’ll have to keep that in mind from now on. Anyway, this will become a target for my sand paper and then I’ll gesso over it and try again.
Ahh, the life of a beginning artist.
EDIT: As of today, 11/28/10, this painting is no more. I gessoed it in black today and will try something new on it.
