Because I spend so much time working on my current quilt, my painting days since the last class number zero. That meant that today I really wanted to get some serious work (meaning "being determined", not allowing for "distractions", and "paying attention to all teacher comments") done.
Believe it or not, I kept to my plan and concentrated on painting.
Because one frequently has to let paint dry before continuing, one moves back and forth from one area of a painting to another. For example, today I started on the background buildings which are one on top of another so while waiting for wet paint to dry (a frequent occurrence) I moved my attention to the bridge over the canal, then back to a building, etc.
I was able to add another wash on the water to change it from the greenish to more of a gray green. From the looks of this photograph now the water seems too gray. I'll have to go back to look at the painting (rather than a photo) and see if that is the case and do something about it if necessary. Gray-green water is what I want, but I also have to be careful not to lose all of the light (white paper shining through). It's close already.
Well, we'll see what happens the next time I work on it - at which point I really have to start working on the big building on the left.
