Redemption

Today, I have made some major changes with my still life set ups.  I have three set ups in place and I am currently painting my first of the series called “Redemption”.

I have decided to do all in Watercolor.  I love painting in watercolor.  I like the fact I can walk away from the brushes while the interruption of the backyard construction is taking place.  I only paint during the day with natural sunlight.  A night, I will draw or concentrate on future paintings.

I am also experimenting with egg tempera and casein with the watercolor.  The rythm of painting with all these water-based mediums seem to flow beautifully together.  I am not mixing them together with the same paint brush.  I am using the other mediums as the final layers ontop of the watercolor.  When I use the egg tempera and casein, I will indicate I am doing so.

I have taken a class with the nationally known artist Koo Schadler and have never pursued painting exclusively with egg tempera.  It will be my next project once I move into the new studio.

In the meantime, I will stay with my beloved watercolors.

This is the first watercolor underpainting layer. I have many more layers to build with color. I paint around all the areas I want to leave white.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the drawing before the watercolor.  I work out most of my problems with this first stage.  For example, I am free to reposition certain objects in the drawing to make it work in the composition.
