Yesterday I ran across a demo by Allan Kirk (http://www.tarnincolour.com/) that seemed to give me whatever it was I was needed to move past my own 'block.'
I altered the demo scene a bit to work on this window using the 'first bright wash' method professed by Lynch and demonstrated a bit more to my understanding by Kirk (mercy, learning can be such a long process sometimes! LOL). I find painting this way a tad counter-intuitive --though
I'm pleased with the results.
As time permits today, I want to try a similiar scene using my more intuitive approach ... just to compare the two.
I think what I am learning over and over again is that there are many approaches to painting - all with results that can be pleasing and fun, and it really comes down to individual likes and dislikes and what works for you. Still, every lesson adds something to the learner -- thus, I think, keeping the entire process fresh and fun.
Have a great Sunday.
