I actually had the time and energy to sit down last night and do some painting. It felt good to hold the brushes in my fingers again. This painting is going to be the first of at least four similar paintings. I may do four, I may do nine. Not sure yet. Whichever way I go it will be so that these can be hung in a square on the wall.
This was a very limited palette as one can imagine just looking at the painting. Lots of red. Red with some aliz crimson, cad yellow and ultramarine thrown in.
One of the challenges I can see I need to work on is lighting. I have daylight bulbs in the studio, but this morning the painting looked a lot redder than I remember. I’m going to have to play around with my lights and their placement.
6×6 inch oil on Gessobord.
