Apple, WIP Day 3
Today I started the first color layer. Whoo! I was really excited about it, but then quickly became depressed when I discovered:
1.)My dead layer wasn't dry. So....yeah.
2.)Either the grey is shining through too much, or the pigments in Dick Blick's paint isn't that strong. I know that pthalo green is pretty transparent, but their paint has no coverage power. Bummer.
3.)A second, and probably third color layer will be necessary.
I've been working on other things as well, but I'm not happy with them anymore. I just get depressed when I look at other people's work. I feel like I'm so far behind. I don't know how I could fix the problem. I don't think that MORE education would be the solution.
Anyway, I also started working on a portrait of my husband. I want to show my teacher that I haven't been totally slacking during the break.
