In my head, the logical way of going about the water she was to be submerged in, was to paint her perfectly, then glaze on top to add gradual layers of deepness.
As you can see above, after one later of glaze, it ruined alot. It was streaky, full of dust, and completely unpleasant...
|oh when i get angry...|
I am already really behind schedule now - and the sudden shock of 20 hours of work gone in one night was scary!!!
Painting can be like a creative persons mathematics. Its problem-solving through the issues of light dark, mishap and technique.
Lesson: Crap happens. Point is you experiment and test your limits. When shit hits the fan, dont throw out the baby with the bath water! Rethink, reevaluate, and redo.
This painting is important to me, and like with all my paintings...I love her like a little child of mine :P Hopefully by next week! I can show you her done :D
Heres to hoping!
Have a great week everyone!
