My Little Experiment
There is an amazing amount of very fine cat hair on this painting, so I've had to pick it out as I go along. Otherwise, I'm having fun adding color in spots; there is an actual method to this madness— I'm trying to make all of the strokes look like they're emanating from a central vanishing point just behind the figure. And I'm adding a spring green and yellow mix to places where the hazy shadows fall from organic origins, like the boughs of leaves. The hard-edged shadows are cast from tree trunks, the woman walking, the street signs, etc. There will be many layers of color, all overlapping.
