Renovate, Revamp, Renew – Painting Over the Past
February 18, 2013 § 12 Comments
This weekend after organizing my painting archives I thought it might be interesting to breath new life into some older artwork. I chose to rework a simple painting from 2008 from a series I made of theater stages. This particular piece had a straightforward composition of two red curtains framing a theater stage with a backdrop of red Italian hills.
Once dried it will be touched up, signed, varnished and available on my Etsy site.
Repainting a piece that you are not attached to can feel fresh and invigorating– as long as it doesn’t turn out like this.
Also, for the sky I enjoyed using impasto– a painting technique using thick layers of paint to reveal brushwork and texture.
