This weekend I have been working on the background for my latest piece.
I have posted before about struggling with layered backgrounds and I had a lot of comments from fellow bloggers saying that it was the same for them which helps a little. I have watched a lot of videos on YouTube and some artists make it look so easy but sometimes the layers just don't seem to work for me. As I add each layer, a lot of the time, it just seems to look a mess.
I took a break from it to do this post because I am just sat staring at it not sure what to do next.
This is how it looked at first.
I didn't like it
I didn't like that either. I think I over did the Quinacridone Magenta. So next came a thin coat of gesso.
When I look at them here on the screen I think I might prefer the first one, OH! I DON'T KNOW! It's too late now anyway that layer has gone forever. That's the nature of layering.
Back to stare at it some more. WISH ME LUCK!! x
