Please keep in mind we are not saying this is how to do it. We are light years away from that ability and knowledge level. It is just a short history of how this painting developed this time.
Tonight we do the first picture in progress effort at reporting about a painting during the painting.
The first and very difficult part for the OFM Teams is to decide on a basic painting concept. Then the colors we will use have to get thought out very extensively. In the OFM situation all those above thoughts have to be written down for reference over the multiple weeks of work.
So finally we have a concept of layout and a wild guess as to the color scheme for the painting. Some color is applied to start the creative juices drooling on things.
Now we start to develop the general scheme more in detail. Colors chosen can change and flop around and arrangements of ideas can be flopped all over the place for several times of thinking.
Now we get to looking at details and what type of details and even if details. Everything is carefully being considered including throw it away and start over.
Now we are in the last stretch of the effort. Close care and choices are more critical and speed of application of the art efforts gets really slow. The blending and fading and lots of other joining of the colors and shapes becomes very serious and careful. The OFM is definitely in way over his head in this part of the effort.
And finally it is time for the “artist” to just quit and call it finished or trash.
No matter all the scalp scratching, the OFM doesn't have any hair to pull, and other nervous fidgets You get what you produced. AND we guarantee that the OFM considers this to be a wonderful way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
