bemusing musings of a bewildered brush-wielder

light patterns


Here is the first moments of a painting I began yesterday evening.  The painting is only about one and a half hours in.  Lately, in figure painting, I’ve been enjoying the effect of the background being lighter than the foreground.  For this painting, several weeks beforehand I tinted the canvas pretty dark.  And so, yesterday I only painted with white and yellow ochre.  I was concerned with the light pattern, the dark of the canvas functioning as my shadow.
