This little apples in a bowl painting is almost done. The nice
thing about writing the blog, is that my artist friends
write me and ask me questions about what I'm doing.
One question last week about gel medium made me
realize it was the answer to this painting. I added some gel
to my apple green, and a smidgen of white, which thickened it
enough to stop the rough watercolour feeling I was getting
with the green.
Starting the painting
nothing. We watched Dana Carvey on HBO, and sat on
the back porch loving the rain and feeling happy
about having a covered deck (a porch). A few
other houses in the neighbourhood have porches
too, and you could hear those people having fun.
Everyone else was enjoying summer inside today.
I worked on my painting tonight, and expect to
paint most of the day tomorrow. But I'd really
like some sun, because rainy pavement is risky for
people on crutches and I want to go outside -- right
Have a walking-proud day.
