Work in Progress: Layer 2...
Continuing with my W.I.P, hopefully you remember layer 1 of the apple painting?
If not, you can see it here :0)
Anyway, here is layer 2...
So, now there is much more contrast between tones :0)
It's a long winded way of posting a painting, but I LOVE it when other artists post W.I.P's!
But, hmm... As much as I like this technique - I'm equally keen to do some 'Alla-Prima' painting too.
I don't intend to change my style, but I do think it's important to swim in different waters from time to time, if only just to explore - It's all knowledge, after all :0)
And frankly, I am impatient by nature and though I would usually layer to this point myself anyway, I'm really not sure there is any benefit to adding a third layer before the colour. It seems a little unnecessary to me.
Ah well, I suppose the answer will be in the final result!
Aside from this I've been playing around with new bear compositions over the last few days.
I'm getting impatient to get a new one on the go!
It's funny that I can feel quite lost all the time I don't have a bear in progress!
I still don't have a composition I'm happy with yet, but I do have some ideas floating around my head... somewhere.... :0)
