My painting project continues this week. I was correct that being a part of this blog forced me to make some progress on my side project, even if it was only a little. I think I’ve finished all of the base layers and can now move on to the details. So far I’ve been using the palette knife mainly, but I might start using a brush.
I’m also glad that this blog is a place for us to discuss our mistakes. In efforts to be brave, I’ll even highlight mine here. After taking a second look, I realized the domed building on the right was the same size or larger than the Capitol building on the left. Nothing in the painting is exactly proportional, but the Capitol is a main feature here, so having it shrink in the background doesn’t make sense (or maybe it does depending on your political views). Regardless, I’ll need to cover up the mistake in the sky somehow.
