View Full Version : Stymied

To use a golf term as title but it describes the situation, I am not a golfer.

40 x 30cms on board. What am I doing? Where is this going? Haven't a clue, just started to make marks and colours and getting nowhere fast. Have turned it every way and still no sense or idea.

Very willing and able to alter as much as needed, it's acrylic

One way of going at it and most certainly not the only way would be: Pick three areas that that you really, really, like. Slap some paint on the rest, use glazes as well as opaque passages. Flood some dilute gesso on, dab it off in some areas. Look again and work in some more.

You have some nice stuff going on here, I look forward to seeing what you decide to do. You could also just leave it and come back to it in a day or two...

After you receive at least 5 helpful comments
(and Graphicali had a very good comment)
then wait a week
and then look at it again with the various comments
think about them

and then do what you decide.

I like it just as is.
so that is my comment
but is it an important comment?
only to me...

it seems fresh and crisp
and the ambiguity
and the fact I can rotate it
so I get 4 paintings for the price of one

but dat is jes my opin-onion
