Stage three : the reds and yellows
Ok so I wasn’t feeling the love when I got in but some Pet Shop Boys on iTunes, a mail from a good friend and a hearty meal woke me up.
I’ve decided to paint out the blacks and take some artistic license with the base of the painting.
I got quite a rhythm going with the reds and yellows (covering my arm in paints in the process)
I’m going to stop here and let it dry throughly for a few days before staring again. I’m in danger of making the sun bigger with every new coat!
I like the proportions now, the colours feel vibrant enough. I need to come back and layer the mist at the bottom before labelling out the sky (which I kind of hate at this point)
It’s not a million miles from where I want it to be but it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t repaint it at least once an annoy myself for painting over something good!
I’m relying on you to tell me when to stop!
