Another painting that seemed to be pushing the envelope. It is unusual subject matter for me and I was determined to try it. For some unknown reason, I seem to be putting myself into these strange painting positions. I was prepared to struggle with it.
The panel for this painting was a gesso prepared Masonite with a reddish orange surface . Very similar to the previous painting.
The oil colours were my limited palette with these changes. Ultramarine Blue, Cobalt Blue, Alizarin, Cadmium Red Light, Cadmium Yellow Medium, Naples Yellow, Jeune( Yellow) Brilliant, and Titanium White.
In this particular painting, I massed the objects onto the panel as opposed to drawing each object. Once the objects were massed (foreground, middle and background) it is now a question of sorting the larger details for each object and adding the impression of that detail to the shape. Sounds easy ! The thing is to continue this method until you are satisfied with the "finished look" that you desire for your painting.... Interesting !
The method certainly gives a different feel and look to the painting and allows lots of room for being intuitive. I certainly did not feel 'locked in' while painting with the initial massed objects.
It was a fun painting to work on and certainly provided another workable painting avenue to help execute the next piece
