I spent my afternoon at the studio today and introduced a new color to the painting. It's a neutral gray, pushed more to the warm side with cadmium red and burnt sienna. I was hesitant at first to introduce a warmer color but I like how it is interacting with the blues and violets. I have yet to effectively use my palette knife for this painting. After a couple of failed attempt today, I'm considering using other flat edged objects to apply the paint with, such as a credit card. Just something wider than my palette knife. After a recent visit to some of my professor's studios I find myself wanting to experiment with other forms of application in my painting. This is kind of open ended, and I'm open to suggestions if you have any. But ya, thats all for now. It is really late and I went out tonight, so I think it might be bedtime. Goodnight and Good Luck.
