The Hundred Day Project Day 54: A Bit More Paint

At this stage I started to apply much more solid colour, often with a palette knife, and sometimes scraping one layer over the other. Most of the centre of the canvas isn’t covered at this stage, and the windmill which was flattened off with solvent at the last stage now looks very dull and lacks any sort of lustre or reflectivity, just absorbing up the light that falls on it.

In so far as I had any control over the process, and paintings often turn into something unintended of their own volition, I was trying to get some balance of tone and colour but still not to make anything that might be something like a cloud.
