Well I said I would post my paintings from the 2nd 3-day Sandy Maudlin workshop. I love painting with the fluid acrylics and am still learning how to mix my favorite colors using this media. I probably could have used different colors for this so I didn't have to make changes to the yellow. Love how the lower left corner came through the process of masking each value layer before adding more intense color at each of the four value levels in this painting. It was time consuming masking each time but I think the end result is very unique and more abstract than I would have done with watercolors.
This painting of an Avignon inner city side street was a little more complicated than I had planned. It meant a lot more masking for each of the four layers. I love the glow you get on Yupo and by intensifying the color through layering. Did you notice the lady scared the three pigeons? I'm painting it again on WC paper with watercolors so watch for the difference. Looking forward to getting your comments.
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see. What else would you like to see here?.
