January 17th - Week Three of the January Painting Project

Gabriella BuckinghamComment
 There's something about this sketch on wood I did today that makes me want to leave it there. Again I had little time but I knew I wanted to use these colours. I had the yellow base coat ready from another day and this image is totally imagined. Sometimes you see shapes in the paint and I saw these hands. I think she's about to sew or mend a shirt. For me this project is really starting to teach me what I like in a painting. Of course this looks unfinished but it then depends on your definition of finished. I love the veils of colour and glimpses of underpainting coming through. I don't know what I will paint tomorrow. It will very much depend on how my day goes. I have a big project that I am trying to complete by the end of January which may or may not come off. It's not painting related but if it goes well I will be starting to teach painting skills on line later in the year. We shall see!
