Layer 4, The Dead Layer on French Girls

Productive day already today. Glazed a bit on my rainy day europe piece...darkening the buildings because I know that is the only thing that will make it read 'rainy'. Even though it was daytime, and everything was mid-tone...I put the photo away and am now trying to salvage this one.

where I left it after session 2

Session 3...I know I glazed the buildings, but you sure can't tell! Forgot I had moved my painting spot to the end of the table, perpendicular to the north light after I took this photo...took another, and you can see a bit of difference.
alot of difference. the light behind me was washing everything out.
THEN, on to Layer 4 of the French Girls
This is after layer 3, the umber underlayer:
This is after layer 4, the dead layer

Great French Girls painting!

Your work has changed since you moved. It's lighter, more free, yet deeper in emotion. I'm very impressed.

thanks robin! I had fun.

Lisa, ya think so? Interesting...might have something to do with feeling lighter! And I am having fun!

Interesting, I had to look back at the images after I saw Lisa's statement. I guess I'm inclined to agree! Hmmmmmmm very interesting indeed, looking very cheerful in this winter season!

How are you liking the slow pace?

vickiandrandyrossart said...

slow pace? you mean on these layers? the dead layer is the only one I've zoned out on. Of course, don't forget that I am a niggedly person by birth...

I have done needlepoint on silk gauze (1400 stitches per sq inch) FOREVER. So this is nothing!

One piece of my needlework 'museum' survived the fire. A Chinese dragon with butterflies, on 18 mesh least 2500 smyrna crosses in a 1/2" border across.

SO, I think we all need to hope this 5 layer method does not capture my interest too much. Capeese?

Most impressive my Red!

the 'dead layer' looks so good I'm afraid I'll ruin it! Oh well, values, values, right?
