|new start on the left, 'White Roses' acrylic on right|
The 'White Roses' next to it, is an acrylic painting I completed in January. You can see I'm still on a similar theme, but I was hankering to get going with my oils again. I love the softness and subtleness of colour, that oil paint allows me for blending. Since it's warm enough outside now to open windows, there's no reason not to use my oils. Although I work with odourless mineral spirits, I'm big on making sure I ventilate when working in oils.
|'Pub Door' - no more! ha ha|
I started this one over a previous painting 'Pub Door' that I was sick of looking at. I had showed it several times and it had never had any interest, so figured it had lived a good life. Besides, I like working on top of an older painting for the dimension it provides as an under-painting.
Usually I create a warm ground, but this time I picked thalo blue to cover it, wondering if it would aid the subtle white shifts that I wanted.
