Painting 2 day 3

This was a really unsatisfactory day for me. Why?
I don’t really know what I’m doing or why.

We’ve tried different techniques of paint handling but in doing that I seem to have lost the basic foundations of colour mixing and going from dark, medium, to light that worked so successfully last term. Maybe it doesn’t matter. I’d also done a preparatory oil pastel drawing of New Cross Gate at night. Thought it would be a great oil painting but so far it is a bit sludgy and aimless.

Traffic lights picture that I quite liked in a minimalist way, became less likeable. I’m going to try to paint some more definite blocks of colour next week.

    Hi Olivia, not sure why you feel this was unsatisfactory as your work is really good – especially like the last, very atmospheric crepuscular one you did. Viv
