Lynette ... thanks for following my progress ... slow as it may be, I shall finish.
I will not start something else until this is done.
I don't know if you have heard of Victor Borge ... classically trained pianist but also comedian ... and he was notorious for starting to play some beautiful music, but he never finished ... he always interrupted the performance to tell a story.
I think this has been my Victor Borge project ... I have been too distracted with other things to finish this in a timely fashion ... but I am on it now.
Karen ... your comment about my style made me think ... because I am not sure what my style is ... I honestly think this may make an interesting topic ... what is style and what is technique and what is the difference.
Angela and Jess and Linda ... thanks ... I like to create texture and these are my favourite colours ... so this is right up my alley.
So what have I done recently.
I like to think of this process as lifting sheets of acetate off the drawing.
And as you lift each individual sheet off the drawing, the image becomes sharper and more detailed.
I am happy with the horizontal part of the cross ... I really like the effect of white paper and violet and lavender and non-photo blue.
I only wish I had a chance to rework the vertical part of the cross ... but such is the price of working with this medium ... there is little room for error. Once you lay down a colour you are committed.
However, that is all part of learning.
And I have learned a lot working on this image.
I think my next post will be my last post for this project.
Thanks for looking
