This is Life #2 of a painting I posted back on Day 5 (Walk in the Woods). Maybe I’ll call this Leaping through the Landscape? I’m still not sure if this one has found its final incarnation, but since I’m having lots of fun playing with Golden acrylics, it’s all good!
I think my painting buddy Debi Riley would probably say it needs more Light. And that’s probably right. But I like the background underneath, and don’t want to obliterate it completely. So I’ve been making acrylic glazes with glazing liquid and transparent pigments……which doesn’t seem to do a whole lot to lighten. Titanium white and Titan buff would lighten but are much more opaque. Maybe this piece needs a unifying layer, but I don’t want to lose the background totally. Suggestions welcome!
I will post the May 8 Draw a Bird Day roundup later on today, celebrating everyone’s lovely bird art! Have a wonderful, restful spring Sunday. Peace.
