Really Red Roses
© A.K.SIMON - Really Red Roses - oil on masonite - SOLD
My goal for this week was to get some panels pre-primed with oil paint. I've decided that I really like painting on a grayed-back, oil-primed panel. So, instead of throwing away what is left on my palette at the end of the day, I'm just mixing it all together and putting it on panels with the palette knife. They are really nice to paint on in a few days. Also, all the grayed mixture that doesn't get used for the panel is put in container to be used as a gray for the next day. This way I'm constantly challenging myself to not be such a slave to the color in front of me but to just play in the colors I have. Only drawback is letting the panels dry for a few days.
