Here is my arts. For your eyes to look with. Here.
Not sure I’m going to be able to finish this off. My brain hurts.
I’ve always found colour theory tough (probably why I avoided colour for so long…) so I thought I’d have a play and mix Process CMYK acrylic colour palettes and see what happens.
Life drawing starts again next week so I’ve been preparing a load of coloured canvasses recently. This colour study has given me some ideas on how to use colours. Will post a pic of the canvasses soon, interesting stuff to come.
Feeling like I was having a heart attack for most of the session aside (I think I have found my caffeination saturation point…) I had fun with these.
Clem hates the non-opaque BG’s (“I can see the painting looks really nice, but I can’t bear to look as its being covered in acid rain….”) so if I’m to stand any chance of these things ever to be hung around the house the remainder of my canvasses will need an executive decision on whether I colour them in flat.
The second picture was a testament to last minute gung-ho-ness with the white tone behind the hair, so I’ve photoshopped it out to what I thought I sort of wanted it to be. I don’t believe in painting over or touching things up after the fact otherwise you just don’t fucking learn. Love your mistakes! …so you don’t make them again…
