Daily Painting: Six paintings, day 9

Daily painting

Today it’s the ninth day of working on six big paintings. This is still the first one. It’s getting closer to finishing, Right now I’m finishing the details. That will take a time, so maybe I will start with a new painting tomorrow. To mix finishing details with the more rough stage of working on a fresh canvas.


Have a beautiful day!

    Simone, spectacular movement with this piece! I love the close-up detail you featured to bring us internet viewers in to see what isn’t as obvious in the photo of the whole painting.

    I like your thought that you might work on finishing details of this piece while starting the rough beginning of your second piece.

    • Simone Nijboer

      Yes, I believe those two combine well. I feel that the flow of the whole process of making six paintings would stagnate if I’m only working on the finishing touches right now. And maybe sometimes I’m more in my ‘risk-taking’ mood that is necessary for beginnings, and sometimes I’m more in my ‘finishing touch’ mood that takes more patience (and when I’m in the risk-taking mood while finishing a painting there is a chance that I take a big brush and ruin the whole painting ;-))
