Back to some painting! The laundry's done, groceries picked up and vacuuming and dusting...check! I can't seem to get dogs out of my head - getting a bit more abstracted but I like to paint in a more interpretive/semi-abstract way. I do have a couple of other paintings on the go - they are not progressing much at all and it seemed like a quick dog painting would help get things going. So the dog made me happy and the others....well let's just say they aren't making me want to squeeze out the paint and pick up a brush! I think there is a term for this....'Procrastination'....
I have been picking away at this painting for quite some time and these are the latest photos. I don't find much of this image inspiring me to paint. Lots of turning, 'dabbing' on some paint - added some very faint lights but it really needed a big change. So more collage and white gesso - now I feel there is something to respond to! So, what do you do when you are 'stuck'?
Acrylic mixed media on birch panel
More collage & white gesso
(terrible picture quality - apologies!)
