Website updated

For the last couple of days I have been working on updating my website, www.pennygrantpaintings.ca. All my newly completed abstract paintings are now up. I still have several that are underway that I talk about in this blog.  It feels good to get this technical stuff done - a nice change from struggling to get my triptych right. I still have a big job of redoing my entire website with software I haven't yet bought - so that it will have a more professional look and fit on all devices.

Next thing - make some new business cards. I've done this several times in the past but will have to figure out how to do it again on my new fancy computer. I have the Avery card stock - so it shouldn't be too hard.  The question - which painting to put on it? Or should I put on a portrait?


I kind of like the one with the phone.

Triptych

I finally found out how to spell tryptich! I added a new turquiosey colour to the reds oranges yellows magenta and blues. I like the ray that appeared. I think I will add some more rays to other parts of this big painting.

Triptec sgain

This is a really big painting - 3' x 9'. Or 3 separate pretty big pictures 3' x 3". I showed it to Dennis and he suggested muting the "dabs " on the left panel. Yes - this really helped.  I had thought of taking the emphasis  to the other panels but couldn't figure out how to do it. Also fluff our the edges of the spheres  which I was planning to do myself.  So it's getting there but not done yet. I joined the Federation of Canadian artists today as a supporter. I wonder how that will go.

Triptec going strong

I have been working on my triptec - developing the flow of the background and working on the discs to bring out new contrasting colours. I still like the middle panel best because the rubbing alcohol created the best blobs. I have to bring all the panels to an equal strength and delicacy.
