Koi Passage work in progress almost finished

Koi passage

 

Here it is with out it being angled back on the table easel.  I do paint this stage on an easel its actually easier because I on’t have to lean over a table. I paint standing which really helps me with my freedom of movement and I’m always stepping back to take a better look at it from a distance.  I also will hang it upside down and look at it for at least a day. This gives me a fresh perspective and helps define the big shapes for me.  iIalso use a piece of red acrylic to check the light passages the values. I have an earlier post showing how a painting looks thru a piece of red acrylic and how to utilize the tool to assist  an artist in determining the light and dark areas.

    I love the colors, the movement, the depth and it makes me feel like I am just missing seeing something….a swish, a turn, a flip… i love it.
