Day 1: Which end is up?
My first painting of this next 30 days, from a 5 paintings series.
I am trying to use what I have, and i had a bunch of old half-painted canvas boards, 8" x 10". They were portraits of sorts from a college project that I didn't use. So I painted over them this morning - keeping the general shapes that were already there.
Then I had to work today (darn it).
Tonight, during Mira's homework time, I started the drawing process. Still trying to find the perfect pen for drawing on a ruff canvas panel covered in paint. This is not an easy thing to find. I used a new type of pen for this. They are supposed to be archival and light fast and pigment ink. We shall see. I like them but they didn't last long and I found myself writing on paper to get them going again. I may have to break my goal of not buying anything new in this 30 days - as I may have worn them out with this one painting.
I am working abstract for these days. What do you see?
Is this still a portrait?
or did it become a landscape?
or a microscopic view?
I am super excited about this series.
