Third Phase: Polyphemus Painting

Okay, so I'll get there eventually, but there's lots of pacing the floor and eyeballing in between each set of paint strokes.  Watercolor tends to be a pain you-know-where anyway;  if you don't allow it to lead, it will go muddy and dull and the piece will look tired.  So keeping the colors spontaneous and fresh is always a part of managing the medium.

But the third phase of the painting is now in place:
Phase three of Polyphemus   Watercolor on paper
This included gradual build up of where darker areas will be plus find the color temperature that best translates how I feel about the subject.  I'm assuming that the next phase will finish the painting.  We'll see.

Have a good Thursday.
