The Value of Posting
I am always experimenting, but I get distracted easily and forget what I have tried before, This is when I find my past posts and blogs useful
If you are like me and enjoy trying out new techniques and materials you may have found that sometimes you come across a piece of work in your collection and you wonder how you managed that particlar piece. I do keep Art logs detailing my experiments but sometimes its just easier to look back at a post on a social media or Art site where you have shown the work and been asked questions by your fellow group members. I was struggling with my creamy sennelier oil pastels yesterday and had to remind myself of a previous still life that had been successful. It was easier to find it on a social media site and read about it than to search my books. I had first made a ground on card using gesso and pumice which had provided more tooth.
