I started a new painting, and now will demonstrate the process of creating it.
When I paint, I rarely do any sketches beforehand, I look through my photos, or create a photo to match my vision, and collage other objects/animals together to create a pleasing composition. So my plan was to create a painting involving water, and a bold pattern like the rest of my current series.
|Here I am looking like a fool in the bathtub.|
|I did the quick initial sketch, and added the swan to mimic the curve of the body.|
|The first layer of the body is completed. |
I filled in the swan, and decided the water would be geometric and flat.
|Where I left off yesterday.|
The background is far too heavy, and I need to think of how to deal with the space on her right. The leg is also confusing. Whenever I have to leave the studio with a painting unresolved like this it's quite annoying, but that's life, amirite?
|Where I left off today.|
