Adding Layers

I have been slowly putting light, transparent layers on the aleph painting between working on various Kickstarter rewards. I think this is where I left off last we spoke.


Then I said I was going to add some beige, which I did.


I know that looks like a mess, but bear with me. This is just how I get started. I’m not doing this with every painting (showing you the process), so pay attention.

Then I started to add some transparent colors. This is a really really light raw sienna with white:


And then some more white and a tad bit of cobalt blue (but you can hardly see it):


Then, this is the last white coat before I start stitching it.


As you can see, there is an “oopsie” on there from another painting. I’m going to leave it there as a “happy accident.”

Two, maybe three more layers to go now, but only one more over the patterns after I stitch it. Stitching takes a while, but I’ll take a few shots as I go along so you can see how I do it.
