|Mr. Fuz Zy Pants, very wet and very much in progress|
I'm handling the paint roughly--largest brushes--gobs of paint on the palette--lots of black, just two other colors and white. After years of shunning black, it has become a must-have, ever since that workshop. (Odd that I changed my mind after so many years)? I'm not going for a polished finish. I'm going for "sketchy" and juicy-- and I'm going intuitively with lots of squinting, backing up, observing, and coming back in for a stroke here or correction there.
When thinking snuck in, I cleaned my brushes, snapped the lid on my palette and shoved it into the freezer.
I love having my freezer around the corner from my oil painting station. Very handy for keeping the paint fresh. Unfortunately, tomorrow, the studio will be dark.
