Aachen Study - Simmering Stews
It is time to let this simmer like stew. Not only do I need to let the paint dry, but I need to step back and allow my brain to stop repeating any mistakes I am making. This will give me time to clean up my studio and get some things done around the house and maybe even get some things started for my next painting. I have never tried to work on two paintings at a time. Since I have to let these paintings dry before I add layers, it might improve my productivity to give it a shot.
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
A #gouache #colorstudy using the same pallet. This is an attempt to do an imaginary #landscape and play with #composition. I like atmospheric environments. This is my base to begin thinking about entire scenes and not just the single item drawings that I have been doing. #art #artist #sketchvia Instagram
