I thought I would demo how I used to paint when I started my daily painting practice blog.
For those of you who have read this blog for a long time, you may remember how I use to show the set up and the progress shot at the same time. Here's a look at the composition in abstract shapes of light and dark. If it holds your attention here you should be good to go.
I went back to the wipe off method I used for a while. This is fun but I get so much paint on me. I hope they enjoy watching me cover the canvas more than how I cover myself.
Something strange and mystical starting happening to my painting of the pear. I wasn't paying attention to the drawing side of things and didn't notice what was happening until I was finished...
The Magical Floating Pear
original mistake by Peter Yesis
oil on canvas board
The pear looks like it is starting to float away. I was so engrossed in laying in the thick paint I never went back to check the position of the pear. This was a good lesson for tomorrow. Maybe I'll bring it along and show them. You never learn more than when you make a mistake....still, it looks pretty,floating in the air that way.
