Lately I've had a lot of trouble deciding if a new painting is finished or not. In fact, I'm looking at ones I thought were finished and repainting them. I just have a general disatisfaction with what I'm doing in the studio, though I keep painting. From experience, I've found that continuing to work is the best antidote to this kind of disatisfaction.
Here's the painting before I started working on it today:
I began today by taking a palette knife and applying large swaths of titanium white. Then I brushed over most of the underlying image with a pale green and cobalt teal.
Next I drew lines with prussian blue and brushed over them. In the final step, I drew lines in mars black, creating a grid-like structure over the whole canvas, and then drawing several circles.
Tomorrow I'll take another look.
