Scumbling Left Handed

Posted by Kathryn Carlson on Sunday, September 14, 2014
Had a physically exhausting day yesterday, so my body hurts pretty bad today, but I managed to get a good two hours of painting in anyway. I'm feeling really excited about the giant painting I'm working on and I think that excitement is what helped me get my ass up to do it. Lots of large areas of scumbling today, which is particularly exhausting on my arm. Good news though, I'm getting better at it with my left hand!

Today, I had just intended to put the sketch on (in charcoal) but was able to move on to putting in a few dark areas and messing around with the beginnings of some flames (which I'm nervous about doing right).

It's hard to share photos at this point because nothing really looks like anything, but I wanted to chronicle the making of this piece. I'm doing it a bit differently, mostly flying my the seat of my pants, doing things out of order and backwards, as I feel the need to do them. It's fun so far. Hoping I don't paint myself into a corner later on in the work.
