This painting seems to be progressing soooo slowly, I almost feel as if it’s not moving at all. However, I’ve painted a first wash on all the birds now and added the rail.
Everything needs to be much stronger so I’ll be going back in with more of the Pthalo Blue, Magenta & Lemon mix tomorrow to try and build up some depth. They’re beautifully delicate at the moment, but completely lost. I’m also fairly sure I’ll be adding a blue wash to the background, to make it recede. I’m not looking forward to trying to paint around all that detail though.
