Today I'm starting on a new painting.
This time I'm experimenting a new approach, and it might turn out to be a different style. For the whole process of painting, I will follow my intuition. I'm little scared but also excited at the same time. Will see how it goes.
Here is my model - three lemons and my favorite coffee mug sitting on the front edge of my bookcase.
I sketched out the objects on my canvas and applied first layer of underpainting with acrylic. I chose to paint it with acrylic at this stage since it dries fast and will be ready for next layer. I picked the colors based on their temperatures (warm vs. cool).
Then I applied second layer of underpainting with same acrylic colors to make it more solid and be ready for oil.
I think this is a good time to take a break. The underpainting need to be thoroughly dry, and tomorrow I will start applying oil layers.
