Alice 3 To Get Away Painting WIP 4
I’d forgotten how much work physical painting involves! Because it’s been a year since I last did one, there have been a few ‘three steps back, one step forward’ moments. She’s coming along nicely, though; however… I’ve put so much work into developing the shades of black and white, I may not want to risk ruining her by attempting the untried (for me) overlay of colour technique. The thing with very thin washes of acrylic is that you only have a very short window in which to work them evenly before they begin to show every stroke, which is not what I want at all (every stroke showing) for the colour wash. When that happens with the black and white I can simply curse and mumble and wait till it dries, then re-do it from a few steps back, but if it happened with the colour wash, I’d have to go all the way back, redo all the subtle tonal variations… no, thanks. I will look into additives that may help, but may also just not try.
