Restating a Painting

with 4 comments


The goal with this painting as I went along was to find a way to knit the painting together with a architecturally structure and to give more body to figures in the foreground. I’ve muted the colors by laying on a dull green wash, which gets rubbed out or painted into. What is not visible now is that I painted in 5 lines that run from the low left to high right of the painting with each area painted with a slightly different of yellow paint. Right now they are just guides.

  1. hey Bob, It’s nice to see your process as you’re working on this, I like the harmony you have after the green wash. I enjoy working in this manner too, seeing what happens as i add and subtract.

    • Thanks Ambera. I’ve been following what you’ve been up to over the last few weeks and months. I the really appreciate the “Interior” group of paintings. I think they are quite extraordinary.
