For Ever After

Here are the "before" and "after" shots.

Saturday, May 23, 2009

I worked on this one today.
I have added some linework and darker tones around the central figures.
I finally finished Elephant Walk.
I added highlights, darker tones and more linework.
I'm quite happy with the way this has turned out.

I've been struggling the last few weeks in a kind of painter's block. Hopefully I am out of it now.

25x25cm Acrylics on MDF

I am also working on this smaller one. This is up to the second stage.
I have added linework over the initial abstract.
I am calling it Elephant Walk.

The white chalk lines will disappear in the next stage.
91x45cm acrylics on canvas

I have started another painting using warm tones.
This is over a background on which I have piped contour lines.
I think this is the way it will go.
Next step, contemplation of what it will develop into.

A reworked version of the previous post.
I am still not totally sure of it but I think
I have given it a clearer focus.
It remind me of storm clouds rolling in over a large body of water at sunrise.

Worked on this new one today.
Playing around with just two colours plus white.
Working on blending whilst maintaining contrast.
Not sure what it will develop into at this stage.
I'll have to study it for a few days to see if it is happy as it is or wants to be something different.
We'll see.
