I Stop for Drops 2012 Katherine Kean
(work in progress) oil on linen 12 x 16 inches
Here's a progression from drawing through details.
Above are the first three (or so) layers from a beginning coral/pink, next a minty, pale green, and then shapes suggested in transparent brown tones. I could almost have begun with the drops at this stage, however I got carried away.
It was so much fun painting the distant urban landscaping, the trees, and the car that I just kept on going.
When I got around to adding the drops I worked from left to right, only working with the largest shapes at first.
This is what it looks like close up.
I'm undecided now. I can just finish this up with a few more glazes, or I may decide to paint over the bottom, this time taking away detail, or perhaps paint an alternate version. I'm not sure - what would you do?
