Wednesday, January 19, 2011
Day 5 didn't go as planned and the Tuscany village is still in the works but I completed "Italian Air Space 1" Don't give me grief about how fast I work. This one was already 1/2 finished and I like walking into my studio with a 1/2 finished piece on the easel. It's much easier to get excited about finishing something than being faced with that blank piece of paper. I almost always try to plan what I'll work on the next day to avoid the "white paper syndrome, which plagues writers and artists.
This piece is on sanded pastel paper which was created using Art Spectrum's terra cotta colored pastel primer. I use an cheap brush so I can get all those textured marks.
