I am slowly adding more layers to this work. This hand-made paper is very rough, and if I will apply paint in a special way with the side of the brush, not its tip, I can get a fun texture.
During the past few month I was working on my project, committing myself to paint every day for 100 days.

I am through this. When the painting is not coming right, I start playing with it, instead of just storing it on a shelf as it is and never pull it out. I had a few occasions like this and one of them turned out a success – “Verrazano Bridge”. This time I don’t think… Read More 100 Days: Day 86
O.K. now I sort of got stuck with this work and I am not sure where this is going. I need to get away from this piece I think, or try to abstract my mind and judge it as someone else’s work, which is very hard. Please comment what do you think about this piece… Read More 100 Days: Day 85
