Next comes a series of layers.  It is very important to let the painting dry completely between washes.


Next I began to show the bricks with quick swipes of color.

After the drawing was finished I did pour red/yellow/blue onto the paper and let it run together.


Then I began painting around the chairs - negative painting - with an under coat the color of the bricks.

THURSDAY W I P

Several  years ago I took some photos of wrought iron patio chairs at a local herb farm.  


Originally I thought I would pour this photo, but after looking it over again I decided direct painting was the way to go!

I printed out the photo in line work and enlarged it.  Even so, there is still a lot of drawing in that needs to take place before painting can begin.
