Finished Painting and a Work in Progress
These breezy but almost hot spring days have had me outside in the garden most of the time, with lots of iced tea breaks so as not to push it too hard. Still, I feel a slight sense of urgency to get done, as summer will be bearing down on us soon. The nights are already very warm, which is just what my tomato plants will love.
This painting was close to finished when I worked on the last six boxes. The white area was all white but textured. Since the texture wasn’t showing up enough, I gave it a wash in diluted black, then wiped most of it away. That was the solution I needed in order to resolve it.
There is only one more left in the group of six. Here is how it looks at the current stage. I’ll change it a lot more before I’m finished. I think.
