I am really enjoying painting now that I am working on three paintings at the same time; I think it is a perfect number. I can start one painting and then while that is drying I can start another and then the last one. I then go back to the first one and add a few more layers.
‘Maelstrom’ has a very thick impasto (Impasto is a technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface (or the entire canvas) very thickly, usually thickly enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible.) effect so I won’t be touching that one for a while.
I also love that I can experiment with the same technique but in slightly different ways. This series is also about trying new things without sticking to a colour scheme or only one method.
Jejune is a hard one to interpret because the meaning is ‘intellectually unsatisfying, shallow’. I love using textures and layers so I can’t bring myself to be paired back. This may be one painting that everyone can interpret differently.
It will be a great joy and achievement to complete these three paintings and be able to move onto the others in this series.
I would love to hear your opinions on my progress so far! Let me know in the comments 🙂
