It’s Still All Mixed Up

posted in: Art 2

Today I continued to experiment with the both the subject of cows, as well as the unfamiliar materials of acrylics on mat board. This time I chose a mustard board for the background instead of yesterday’s red . Mat Board I also decided to make the cow larger, as yesterday’s scale felt too small for me. I was happy with the study. And when I propped it up next to yesterday’s work  I realized yesterday’s study was pretty blah.

I feel a new series coming on, but the next surface I’ll use will be some sort of archival wood. I’ve concerns about the archival quality of mat board. It is good for me to change materials from time to time. Helps keep me fresh…

It’s still all mixed up and that’s all right with me.
