what the hell, just could not accept it. two much blue so i add two new colors, putting it even more over the top. If this does not sit well with me ill be force to neuter it color wise. it has its one of a kind status, and what the hell, next.
so far from what i think i want, but so much more than i expected. almost done, worked over the gray, blue, yellows and red. now I’m glad i did not go for the sepia colors of sophistication, so many wonderful spaces in this anarchy of form. still I’m worried that i have not pulled it off and this is a work of an amateur.
more work, it helps when its dreary out to stay in the studio. when you know you can change things and still go back to the way it was, it makes you braver. looks good now for the details and mistakes that will appear as you see into the canvas. and do i remove the painterly?
the under painting using rudimentary color to define shapes. do not always take this much care at the beginning of the painting leading me to think this one will be very exact and refined. then when its not working who knows.
again two choices and some redrawing. funny how some of the underlying patterns are more apparent in the top one. the bottom is more challenging in the harmony of the colors. May try putting a light background around the top one.
