Days 6 and 7
Made it to the end of the mural and completed the blocking in process. Now it’s time to finish detailing. This is my favorite part of the process, but I’m also looking for ways to better transition elements from one to another. In some cases I have to add an element.In others, it requires some color shifts using glazing. The wonderful thing about glazing is that it allows light to pass through the top layer and refract off the layers underneath. This adds luminosity and depth.
I’m now listening to ARISTOTLE AND DANTE DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE by Benjamin Alire Saenz. The book has garnered many awards, and I can see why. The voice is so strong in this novel, which is about an angry young man whose brother is in prison and with the help of a know-it-all friend goes looking for the answers.
