Here’s a quick trip through the first painting in the new series titled “Sky Pads”. I’m set up to do the second one, but still sitting on the fence with the first. I had to stop after the second pass and let it settle in my mind a bit, but ultimately decided that I really didn’t like how the pads just sort of popped out of the background. Had a mental picture of them blending in so that the viewer could not tell exactly whether they were floating or not. So I darkened both the background and the pads and I think I am happy with it. But I need to get started on the second one without stalling around waiting for my brain to say the first one is OK.
