[I found a god-damn awful unfinished painting hiding in a draw a few weeks ago… and this is it now. I rescued it, and am so pleased with how it turned out! Today’s lesson: never give up on a painting; there is usually¬†some hope…]

New Painting: Proud Bruises, Peacock Plumage

Proud Bruises, Peacock Plumage (2018) – Emma Tann

Acrylic on canvas.

Painting in Progress

 

A current work in progress. The first time I’ve ventured onto canvas in a very long while… And I am rather pleased so far. I am convinced that it isn’t finished, although I feel too scared to add anything to it. I’ll just sit and look at it for a bit longer…. Ah, the heartache of knowing when to stop!

Blue and red feel like home; I cannot escape these god damn colours! Translucent, glowing. Serendipitous bleeding, uncontrolled. And white. White canvas. I don’t want to lose all the white canvas. I need to build up more layers. Carefully and patiently.

Fy hoff lliw ydy porffor. Well, it is for today at least.

This new painting is all about that delicious gap; the white paper. Tension. Mmm.
