it was terribly hard to choose the right color sceme
the photo looks whitish at some places cause it’s acrylic- reflects light
but no worries – it’ll be mostly covered by wax pastel and mattifying spray
as a matter of fact i only chose acrylic for the underpainting cause the colors looked more vivid as opposed to gouache. somehow when i started of with gouache the colors all came terribly dull and ,well, wrong.
but! now that i’ve proceded to the next stage and introduced wax pastels on top of acrylic, i’m not all that happy with the collaboration: matte on top of glossy looks weird
i’ve came up with some more reasons but it’s a bit of a headache to translate them to english
so.. next painting : back to gouache again or maybe a mixture of acrylic and gouache, i don’t know
actually wanted to start over but was convinced otherwise 🙂
on a random note: it’s RAINING outside. which is great and unbelievable. but true. way, way too late to rain this time of the year.
on a second random note: watching “brideshead revisited” UK series from 1981. great adaptation of the book.
