Rewind…and repaint?

13 04 2013

Trying to organize my room this morning and found some old paintings I didn’t even remember. Here’s an old work-in-progress from college that I have no intention of finishing. I need to re-gesso it and paint something new…

This one only made it to a first level underpainting, meaning some shape needs to be added to the edges, darkening layers in the face (which would also add more shape and thinning to the face).

Same thing on this side - needs more layers in the face. Oh, and an eye and eyebrow would be nice.

Then I have some completed paintings that I nevertheless don’t really want around. This one is so dark, maybe I would just do a black paint cast instead of white gesso and make another dark-toned painting:
It never occurred to me until now that the pool table set up might be weird. But then, this scene was never set up to be a painting.

Some marks on this from paint getting stuck to a canvas on top of it - there's a white bit above the light. My storage techniques need work.

So much to do today! Time to go running. 🙂
