30 in 30: Days 3 & 7 Layers 5 & 6

Day 7:  I have actually worked on several even worked on day 4 which did not get posted in time.  I am adding pics to one of the pieces I am doing in a class.  Today I added clear gesso, and since I am using things I have instead of supplies for the class, I made glazes using Indian Red and a green I mixed to mimic green gold, and red iron oxide watered down a lot to be transparent.

The color on the top is a glaze using pthalo blue – green shade.

The instructor used a brush as a measuring tool and I thought “Duh” and did the same thing. When I was a practicing potter, I knew all kinds of measurements using my hands but haven’t really done the same thing as a painter.

  • This painting is for a class I am taking and I will go more in detail a bit later. The instructor is using zebra board. I used zebra wood in college and decided to imitate thewoodgrain on a panel I have. First I used graygesso with whitegesso streaked across. 

    In step 2 I used a combination of Titian Buff, Zinc White and Raw Sienna glazed over the gesso.

    In Step 3, I used a dagger brush along with a dry bristle brush to make the “grain”. I used Burnt Sienna, and Raw Sienna glazes in this stage. Not discouraged but both my Mom and my husband think it looks like water.
