Exercise 7 Not For Sale
12"x12" oil Not For Sale
This was the final piece in the Dreama Tolle Perry online class. It was a lot of fun to paint and I am happy with the results. The five things I am taking away from this course are the following: 1) Wipe the brush off after almost every brush stroke to keep it clean and not contaminating the clean colors 2) make sure to put my mind and painting environment in the right state to focus on the painting 3) work steady but don't rush and don't let distractions creep in 4) Make sure the first layer of paint is darker than you know the final painting will be 5) set up my palette the same every time and keep it clean. These are things I had been exposed to and inconsistently practiced, but they really sunk in with this class. The great thing is that I will have access to the videos for the rest of the year to refresh my mind and also maybe pick up 5 more things.
