At this point, I'm doing more of the same thing and adding finishing touches. I added a bit more bright blues and white. Next time I want to paint the edges and sign it, but other than that, I believe it is done.
I added a bunch more white lines to give the piece more depth and begin closing the bigger black gaps. I also took dark values of my color palette to add detail into the remaining dark space.
Mrs. Mosley gave me a giant bin of string so I dipped different sizes in paint and printed and dragged them onto the canvas. This allowed me to get thin and straight lines across a wide area. I also used the palette knife to create the textured white lines. It was looking a little too vertical so i scraped horizontal lines into the paint already on the canvas.
Just getting started! I painted down a dark base and was going to leave it there but I also added some white marks that I could build on top of later that can peak through. I know I want to bounce off of my practice painting by creating a pattern of vertical lines but I haven't decided what method I should use yet.
