Seeing

October 26, 2011 § 2 Comments

Monday I shared the photo of this painting covered with black ink on areas in the foreground…Now you see the piece is washed off under running water. The gouache (“gwosh”) which is water soluble when dry, dissolves – leaving a stain of its colors in reverse order of how they were applied – and pushes the ink (waterproof once dry) off itself in flecks. I did not apply ink to much of the grassy area because I knew it would stick more than I wanted it to once washed off…and I wanted the lawn to look pristine in contrast to the very earthy, gritty, substantial chair.

Now I can really see what more needs to be done in the way of repainting and touching up before I am satisfied to call this commission – “Lawn Chair with Thoreau Pillow II” – done.

More tomorrow. Thanks for stopping to see!
