monday monday

Are successful paintings the ones that just flow through you from the great beyond? You know, the ones that make you think you're special.

Or, is a successful painting one that you learn from? For Monday's painting I changed my palette from cool over a warm foundation, to warm over warm. It was an experiment and I learned a few things. Among them, a technique new to me where I touch the edge of a paper towel to mineral spirits and kind of tickle over the canvas. It lifts paint in a random manner and gives new hope for overworked areas. I also learned that I'm more comfortable with a cool palette.
