“Ode to Olin” has been completed. You can see the work in progress if you scroll back a few blog posts. I had great fun on this one, doing a lot of building up and then sanding down of surfaces.
There are three more panels gessoed and ready to go. I’m trying to decide whether to jump into a continuation of the library series right now or to use the panels for water reflection imagery. Must ponder this one. I’d like to do both at once, but I think I have a better flow if I stick to one type of painting at a time. That was a lesson learned from working on “Ode to Olin” at the same time as several water reflection paintings. There was a little twitch in my right brain every time I switched from one painting to the other, with a short period of adjustment going from the looser water paintings to the more controlled “Ode to Olin”.
