Storing my Paintings in my Studio
Worked out a new system for storing my paintings in my studio, but I'm worn out from putting it in place and constructing it, let alone moving everything else out of the way. It should eventually make everything better, but is an inconvenient change right now, since I can't get to either my easel or my painting table. Like I said, it will get better over time. Good that I went to the drop-in figure class this weekend that I love. I felt like I had good successes, three of which I placed in the slideshow on my web page "Portraits and Figures" (See the site map on the left of the screen). Although I experimented with using markers, I am still figuring out if they show any promise for me. The pictures I posted are all done in liquid acrylics with no preliminary drawing. It's always such a challenge, rather like a test, to get the figure down on paper in the alloted time. One of those was 1/2 hour pose, and one was 1 hour, but I did 2 paintings, since I finished early and knew that if I kept working on the piece, embellishing it, I would spoil it. There is a point at which I recognize that I'm done.
