Mid way. I started by wetting the whole paper and putting washes on that I didn’t mind bleeding into each other. After that had dried I went back in with more deliberate color.
This month’s 30 in 30 just hasn’t really come together and as I said before I’m not very good at landscapes. This one could be a lot worse though.
Bird of the week. Boy I am so not on form right now.
I really am pretty poor at landscapes. Maybe I should start from a single tree and work up.
Phew! Trying to get back in the swing of things for the 30 in 30. Trying again to keep the color scheme limited and subtle and plenty of life in the ol’ brushstrokes.
Done *very* quickly as I’m running late.
Edit: I actually gridded up the picture before drawing this out. I tend to make the same drawing mistake with animals that I do with people i.e. making the head too big and the the body too small. Drawing using a grid put a stop to that but I felt it inhibited my drawing flow somewhat and made things a little stilted. I think the only real answer is to just get better at drawing.
The painting went pretty quickly. I like to put the stripes in when the paper is partly wet and partly dry so some bleed and others look sharp. Gives the whole a more interesting look.
Off to a slightly shaky start as I forgot paintings really need to be posted in the morning. I improvised my day 1 painting with last weeks bird and got a pig ready for tomorrow.
