Painting From Life July 11th & 18th, 2019


Second Session:

oh. I have mentioned in my other posts that my niece was visiting for the week. Because of this a lot of things about my schedule were a bit different. Not awful or unmanageable – just different. In this case it led to me having my painting supplies in the car for a few hours before class. I know the heat (especially in a black car in 90 degree heat) isn’t good for the paint, but I didn’t give it much thought as it was going to only be a few hours.
yeah, well… I had no idea how it would affect the turpenoid. Apparently if you leave turp in the car in that kind of heat it evaporates. Completely. Not a spec left. Didn’t leak out all over the car – just went away.

So my second session was painted without any way to thin my paints or clean my brushes out (completely – I still had paper towels to remove the bulk of the paint). This was an experiment that I did not enjoy.

I am not happy with this painting and I wish that I could blame it on the absence of thinner…. but I don’t think that was it.

Maybe next week will be better. Still learning. Still worth it.
