Today I have been in the studio building up a new Moroccan painting. This is a big 40x40 inch and has a way to go yet. At the moment it looks too square and contrived. I`ll have to work into it now. Which means diving into it. One technique which I use is to scrub into areas with a mix of ultramarine and brown , bluey burgundy`s or burnt sienna. This will uniform the image so it isn`t all clashing so I can build it up again picking and choosing what areas are important.
It would be very easy to say " well it looks done " .But without the layering,it isn`t done.
