Week 13, What a great number!
New Day, new week, nothing but blue skies, shining on me!
It's overcast outside, but not in here! I love my house! I have been thinking "a lot" since my previous post. I popped out of it rather quickly.
Rebelle 6, digital painting software, paint a painting (13" x 17")
Print to canvas
Mount to stretcher bars
Varnish the painting and dry for two days
Add some Griffin Alkyd Oil paint (if needed or will help the result look less digital)
Dry for a month
Add more varnish and dry for two days
Add some varnish gel to give the painting relief (3D)
Insert it into a floating frame
Call it done!
That's the steps to a successful paint! I can do the first step in my sleep. I "know" how to do that and will succeed. Guaranteed!
After I get my first 12" x 16" painting done, I will post it up here. To go into the frame it will actually be a 13" x 17" image. The extra inch will allow the painting to "wrap" around the stretcher bars. Remember: this goes into a floater frame so the sides are "sort of" exposed...
Here is my digital setup that resides in my Oil studio. There was just enough room for everything to fit. Wish me luck!
