New Approach to Painting
We are learning a new approach to creating an acrylic painting. The background is painted FIRST! Yep, that's right! And preferably with your reference photo UPSIDE-DOWN!
My painting of the Golden Gate Bridge from Seal Rock was my first attempt. (Scroll down to see.)
Here is my second attempt at painting using this approach. Steps 1 and 2 were done in class. I continued Step 2 and added Step 3 this morning.
STEP 1: Painted background with canvas upside-down;painted; from my black and white sketch holding it upside-down even though I am showing it rightside-up in this photo:
Step 2: Turned canvas rightside-up and began painting the objects in the sketch:
STEP 3: This morning I continued painting the objects for a while and then painted more background using my colored pencil sketch.
