OK, so the next painting in this series will be a turtle. I’m doing a practice turtle first, so I took an old canvas that had a lot of texture on it, from a multi-media piece I’d been working on. Right away I learned that a smooooooooooooth surface is much better for this outline/scribble style. I want to be able to control my outline, and hitting bumps will make that tricky.
I’m OK with the background. Don’t love it, don’t hate it. I drew out the turtle, then really roughly went over the drawing with white paint, so that I didn’t lose all the detail. I actually remembered to put the eye in right away, ha. My color palette will concentrate on the complementary colors of orange and blue.
Here it is with all the color laid down. Not totally digging it yet, but I’ll let it completely dry, then add the outline.
I’ll keep ya posted………….
