I’ve been working on doing some fun and exciting work updating older paintings that I was not 100% happy with. Updating older paintings is something I do all the time. It is something that I’ve always done. In the beginning of my art journey, I recycled canvases because I needed to conserve supplies. Now I do it because I teach and often paint the same thing several times for lessons.
This live video on Facebook shows my process and how I think through and problem solve as I update an older painting.
I was preparing for a live sale on my Facebook page, and I ended up repainting several paintings. Here are a few that got new looks…
This is a really great way for you to practice taking a lesson or tutorial that you’ve learned and change it up! Make it yours! Play with different background ideas or color palettes! You may be surprised by how much different a painting looks with just one little tweak…like a background color change.
I am always encouraging my Creative Community members to work towards finding what they love and doing more of that.
