Winter Lake

Decided to send in my homework early to be able to get some criticism! I had used the modeling paste and painted without the Gesso. Definitely needs Gesso. I am learning a lot, to not use the photo as photographed but to do the value sketch and stick by it. To change the shapes to abstract, make more interesting shapes and lines. I wanted this to be a moody painting and I feel I accomplished that. So much to think about, hard edges, soft edges, where to put them. I am sure Johannes will find many things to work on.

  1. I really like working on the board with the modeling paste. The effects are great. I may try different texture, maybe smoother in the next batch and definitely gesso on top as the paint soaks in when toning.
