    To Grunge and Back

    Detail with my favorite two boxes, the top left pink and blue.

    Here's how the canvas looks right now.

    Now let's start at the beginning...

    11:43 am: This is one of the earliest stages, nice and bright.

    11:43 am: Pthalo turquoise in the jar.

    12:04 pm: This is the second phase, where i made a decision i regret... i wish i hadn't painted on the dark edges around the boxes! After that, I splashed water and wiped with a towel.

    12:04 pm: Detail of the shot above.

    12:15 pm: Splashe more water then put the canvas upright (I work with it flat) and let it drip, pretty grungy. Much of the paint was already dry, thus no drippage.

    2:00 pm {lunch break before finishing}: Ultimately decided that I wanted a cleaner look so i painted over a lot of the boxes and changed some of the colors until everything looked good to me.

    I'll set it aside to let some ideas simmer. Doodles in the boxes? A big flower on top? One thought is to do another kind of like this and so if I don't like whatever I put on top, I still have the boxes!

    I love watching the process. I can't wait to see what you do with the end result!
