Creating A Series

Posted February 13, 2017 by Sandra C. Dovberg

I would like to expand on the blog “Crossing the Line” in which I was referring to paintings.  One of the positives about a series when painting is that it allows paint, solvents or sprays to dry.  An artist usually does not paint a painting in one sitting.  If so, it’s either a sketch or just the way that painter approaches his medium.  Most often artists paint in layers and often their layers are transparent or translucent which allows for mixing of colors and depth in a way that is different from mixing two opaque colors together before setting them on the substrate (canvas, board or paper). Therefore, working on more than one painting at a time is efficient and helps one focus.  One doesn’t get distracted and fall off course.
