So I started working on a piece for a friend who wanted 3 tier staggered piece. The idea was to start with a gradient background in a few colors while I worked out my plan. The piece kept taking on it’s own space landscape vibe, so instead of fighting it I’m just going to go with it and see where I end up. I’ve already put in a lot of time which normally I would have finished in one weekend. I had to take a bit of a break too and so now It’s progressed and I keep getting slightly stuck mostly because it’s got a lot of darkness already so I feel like some highlighting would be helpful. But of course I have the urge to blend the left side almost blackish with red and some highlights almost like that’s where the sun is going down behind this strange place.I tried one new technique towards the bottom where I do circles or cots to connect the surface I’m not sure if it will stay I kind of like it but it also makes the piece seem more landscape sometimes it stops the eye and I’d rather have a piece that pulls you around the canvas.
