3. Paintbrush x 1
I couldn't find impasto locally so the best I could do was the gesso - it seems to work ok. I think the impasto would have been a bit thicker - but that also would have meant I would have had to buy more of it. The bonus is that I bought 2 tubs of the gesso so if after it dries I dislike what I have, I can always give it another coat and cover up what I have. I'm not sold on the flowers but it looked too plain without something there, and I'd like some texture to whatever it is. I could have gone with circles... I still could if I decide against the flowers. I'll be adding some Adirondack paints in creamy fawn colours (Lake Mist and Pebble), with a mid blue and a darkish blue (Pool and Stream), plus some pale green (Juniper) along with some silver highlights. I just hope it turns out like I have it pictured in my head!
Please leave a comment - should I stick to the flowers or ditch them for some circles (overlapping different sized - kind of like bubbles)?
