Priest’s Path – Time Lapse Painting

Priest's Path

Priest’s Path

The final layer of paint you see covers various experiments especially in the sky. At various stages I could have left the painting as it was but after I am finished experimenting I just can’t resist ‘rescuing’ the painting and moving it on to a point I’m happy with.

This is something similar to overworking and maybe it is overworking. The flat grey sky with a few breaks showing the blue peeping through was the plan. As the painting emerged this featureless grey of the sky became an irritation to the point I had to backtrack and add a little interest in the form of swirling movement.

Check out the progress in the accompanying video. I have completed the next painting and I’m still experimenting with Alkyd colours. See you in a few days.
