|In the beginning...|
|The fun is just beginning. The junction where both the left seagull's wings hit the front wheel of the bicycle is problematic to me. I am going to try pushing that tire back.|
|I added my new Williamsburg Cadmium Red, which I would compare favorably to Bobbi Browns lipsticks. Both are loaded with pigment. Oh my!|
So far I have only indulged in expensive paint when I have a store coupon and luckily, I am painting thinner these days. Impasto would be a killer in fancy paint that was 30 -75 bucks and up, for 37 ml tube. Good paint is really amazing and thrills me like... well ya know, it's good. I just experimented and bought some "plain wrap" paint, thinking I could use it as filler. It was so yucky, like putting down, BAD spackle. (That's bad, to be worse than spackle).
I wonder how much Gerhard spends on paint? He uses good paint. In his documentary movie, every "plop" of paint I heard hit the ground, made me want to grab a scraper and save it.
BTW, this painting is not finished. I told myself I was not going to blog anymore about stuff still in progress. However, I think this one is going to disappear, so this might be it's only debut.
