The nature of things.
Good morning and welcome to my Monday Blog
The Nature of Things Oils on panel 13 x 9 inches
Sometimes things do not go according to plan.
I am referring to my studio work this week.
I have been away from my painting for a few days
owing to maintenance jobs around our home and
Saturday was the only time I put brush to canvas.
I was planning to put some darker washes on a landscape I painted some time ago.
All was going well until I decided to change part of the composition.
I should have known this would not end well for my landscape.
After a struggle I did manage to bring some order to the chaos
It was definitely a case of 'Creation-Destruction-Creation'.
A detail of the work.
Parts of the previous painting show after scraping back.
I love this part.
The oils have a luscious texture.
The rich green was made with a mix of black and yellow
This little area of the painting would be good to try as an abstract.
I have some 12 x 12 inch box canvases which would be ideal.
Until next time...
Thank you for visiting.
