I’m working on a new technique taught by one of my wonderful teachers, Joan Iaconetti. It’s all about painting more loosely, applying thick paint, spraying it with water, letting it run, drip, whatever. Go back and paint some more.
Spray. Blot. Drip, Dry.
Working on this painting sounds very much like a laundry commercial. My laundry should be as much fun. Luckily I was banned from doing the laundry many years ago by the Husband after I turned a few pairs of his white boxer-briefs a lovely, non-NYPD, pink. Can’t change in the locker room with pink briefs. Lucky for me the Husband is EXCELLENT at doing laundry. And don’t even get me started on his folding abilities. Every once in a while when he’s folding t-shirts while watching the hockey game he will call me over, show me some of the folds and then tell me to be careful just as he pretends he got the equivalent of a paper cut. Oh he is amusing that Husband!
I’m enjoying this style of painting and hope to be posting more. I used mostly paynes gray and at the very end added a bit of raw sienna and some phthalo blue.
