Sofia came to the studio today. I asked her help. I was losing the paintings. The were becoming painterly paintings, some thing that I did not want and I can not do anyway. With in 10 minutes Sofia had it cracked. Indeed the background too full and busy,I would have to apply a lazure, gray, with a soft brush. Also Sofia said, a cold gray, this will increase the colour contrast with the warm green, and the objects will float again. Then the next thing you should try with your new paintings is increase the size of the canvas, but not the objects. By placing the object in the right place you will create dynamics in the object. In this way you do not have to suggest a movement with your paint, making the painting simpler and stronger.
thanks for you wisdom Sofia ♥
Lazure: layers of paint prepared thin and transparent
