Last week’s painting reminded me of a picture I painted in 1991 at a workshop led by California artist, Barbara Nechis.
When I searched out that 1991 painting of the Three Sisters (shown on the left, below) I also found a floral painted at the same workshop. The first was done as an exercise following Barbara’s demonstration of negative painting, the second after her demonstration of wet-in-wet painting. I was asked why I had chosen to split the shading of the gradient on this second painting right in the middle. Of course I couldn’t answer that as I hadn’t actually intended to do it that way. But now I have my answer… it provides a nicely balanced overlay for the first painting (Photoshop Blending mode>Multiply>Opacity>70%). The 2013 Three Sisters exists only on my computer.
