Daily Chat - April 23, 2015
Yesterday turned out to be a very busy day for me, and not busy with art. Today I plan to work a lot on my Tiger picture. I was going to call this one 'Momma' Tiger until I realized that's what I called my last tiger picture...LOL. Oh well she will be "Momma Tiger II".
The way I like to do my paintings of portraits is to get it on the canvas in an outline, then tape out the edges and do the background before painting the subject. So I'm up to the background piece and can't decide what I'm going to do with it.
I was thinking an impression of bamboo trees -- not distinct just giving the illusion that's what is there. Or maybe just a camouflage background like I did in my other Momma Tiger. Then I was thinking maybe a field with trees in the background - realistic like. Any suggestions? I want to keep the background predominantly green because the orange of the tiger would show good on that....actually the complement of orange is blue isn't it ... do you think a blue back ground would be better? Maybe a sky type background. Ugh.. why am I wavering on this? It's so unlike me.
How's the flooring coming along Chanda? That's some hard work.
I'm real enthused with the forum being active these days. Love to talk to you folks.
