I also left the tabletop white and there was practically no shadow so I added one but I think I should have used paynes gray rather than the purple. It looked better when it was wet:) Oh well, that's how we learn. Another day another painting.
I was also working on this crazy abstraction.
I am completely obsessed with just making a particular pattern I put it on everything, geesh.
I know. I know. its nuts. But I have to do it! I'm compelled. I'm not in love with the shapes but whatever.
The whole time I worked on the green sections I was listening to the very cool Matthieu Ricard, a Buddhist monk on TED. I thought he was great. I think I have a crush on him and his serenity... Check it out if you have time. Its all about meditation and the mind and happiness. That is exactly what it feels like I am doing when I do 'my' little circular patterns, I zone out. Its very meditative.
I also started this tonight earlier but got bored, I will got back to it, I think. The boys were watching Gattica and the movie got to be more interesting than the painting.
I hope everyone has a happy and cool Sunday. Its hot as hell here.
Tomorrow is looking to be a 100 degrees.
Take care and go easy.
