It’s been a cloudy, lazy weekend. I took advantage, and got some rest.
I have been working on Sunny Chair, though. It’s evolving.
At one time, I used to start out a picture with an exact idea in mind of what I wanted it to look like, and work towards that. One thing that I found, is that what works in your imagination, doesn’t necessarily translate well onto paper or canvas.
As I was working on this, for instance, I changed the color scheme to something that I thought would work better. I thought I would continue with a lavender shadow, and bright yellow surrounding it, the way I had the picture in the sketch. This is one example of finding something that worked better once I was in the middle of the drawing.
So here it is. Not the best photo, it’s cloudy out. I took the picture in incandescent light, which makes a yellow-gray cast to everything.
But, it’s evolving.
