3-legged stool? What kind of painting would that make?
Sometimes my ideas in my head, do not neccessarily translate to the canvas. And this was one of them.
So, I threw caution to the wind and started adding cold wax and oil paint and textures and whatever else I wanted to add to it.
I covered up the earth. Too distinct and seem to be plastered on.
Took my palette knife and wax and paint and added to the background. Marble dust sprinkled on for stars. Gosh, painting stars has not been easy, but using that sprinkling of marble dust and then glazing over it just set those stars back in a nice way. Some copper oil paint to add some zing and I felt a lot better about where this painting is going.
With the wax on the canvas, my new favorite tool is a chop stick.
