Another WIP.

A couple a weeks ago I posted a painting that was w.i.p, but I decided to wash that away, and now it looks like this! Any suggestions? I´m open for your thoughts and ideas.

Mount it to the board it's on and put it in a show. They love this sort of thing.

Re: Another WIP.

Niclas,
Is this what you did after washing off the first painting? Not sure what else is needed. It is a minimilist, stylized flower that has lovely sensuous lines.

The large flower looks a little unbalanced, IMHO, perhaps add another petal on the left????? I can almost see one there in the white form.

Sylvia

"This sort of thing" ? Is that good or bad?

Re: Another WIP.

Hey Nic, good to see you.
Good question on "this sort of thing"...and who's "they"?
I guess I'm "they", because I LOVE the effect of washing away paint, and have done a lot of work that way - the patterns and textures left behind have a great organic look that would be almost impossible to paint. I think this is pretty cool, and wouldn't touch it myself, it's got everything it wants. Keep experimenting with the technique, it's a wonderful way to break away from the straight and narrow. Nick

It's good very good in fact

I would agree with Sylvia, that flower may just need a hint of another petal to give it a better form and structure.
