Study in White



I decided that I needed to get down to basics again. It seems that I have a tendency to rush a painting rather than taking plenty of time to do a very good drawing before beginning. Then to proceed with thought and care. In this painting I worked out a nice drawing before I laid brush to canvas. It was quite difficult for me but I learned a great deal. There are some major problems with the painting but I was afraid of losing it. I will try again and correct what I felt I did wrong. I took photos of the drawing and then erased them from my camera. Next time I will show the entire process.

There's nothing "basic" about Study in White! It looks more than a little difficult, but I love hearing about your process and look forward to seeing the next go-round!

Looks like you had a lot to concentrate on. Lovely use of subtle colors changes. I don't think you will be be correcting much. Very nice.

I love your work. It's very beautiful. I really like the painting under your name which introduces your blog. Lovely.
Sometimes artists have to go back to basics and do their 'scales' as it were. Good for you!
Happy Painting,
Nora

Thank you, Diane. It was an ambitious set up...next time I will tackel something simpler.

Thank you, Nancy. Yes, next time something not quite as complex. I didn't know what I was getting myself into.

Hi Nora...thank you for commenting on my blog...doing scales is a perfect way to describe this exercize.
