2 steps back! Kinda like playing CandyLand...one forward, 2 back and reassess. Or hope for a better card, maybe a Free Pass? No such luck.
Today Les did his demo of Georges in oil. After watching him pull off another winner, we worked on ours. This first painting is Les', the others are mine.
funny thing about painting, every 'master' has a different technique, different theories of how to get the blasted image on canvas. Every one has a different 'palette' composed of particular pigments that they have tested and used for years. Their favorite brushes, some use medium to soften the pigment, some don't. SO, as a student, it seems you are always working with unfamiliar techniques and materials. THERE, that is my story and I'm stickin' to it!
