One of the things that keeps my interest high in painting a series is to start more than one painting. In my last post you saw the first one I started. It actually only has two washes on it at this point.
There were two doors in particular that I wanted to add "gesso juice" to the whiter stones around the door and so I started in on them next. I finished the one below first. I had to do some research on how to create the beaded glass and am pleased with the result but it took several stages to create it. I need to write down my notes before I forget. I will have to look at it for several more days before deciding if it is finished.
II'm editing my post to include the 2nd door which I finished today. It is in Saint Emilion and had quite an ornate insert in the door panel. I ended up putting down several layers of green and teal trying to get the right look for the different colors of green on the door due to age and oxidation.
Your input is always welcome.
Have you visited France and seen some magnificent doors as well? I would love to see your door photos.....
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.
