Dominical Sketching :: Sketch dominical

There are always a myriad of colour choices that will work in any situation, as long as the tonal value is appropriate.
— Gaye Adams

Why is it that some paintings just don’t turn out? I know that for me, I need to love what I paint… if there is a tiny inkling of doubt, the painting usually suffers. I have been promising myself to paint this farmhouse every time that I pass in front of it… and yet. Well there are some things that I like about it… the fact that there are no ink lines (except for the electrical lines), my trees are slowly evolving…. instead of painting each individual branch, I am putting in layers of abstract forms, which I like. I think that the colour values of my painting are off… as I did not do a value sketch beforehand. Next time I will -)))

Pourquoi est-ce que certaines peintures de décollent pas? Je sais que pour moi, je dois beaucoup aimer ce que je peins…. si j’ai l’ombre d’un doute, la peinture va en souffrir. Les choses que j’aiment de cette peinture est le ciel, ainsi que la forêt qu’au lieu de peindre chaque branche individuellement c’est un amas de calques abstraits, que j’aime. Je crois que les tonalités de couleurs est off dans cette peinture car je n’ai pas fait un croquis de tonalités de valeur avant… prochaine fois je vais le faire -)))
