Yes, it's finished. Finally.
Well, actually, I finished it last week. But, I didn't get the chance to update here until now.
After my last diptych project update, I only did two more steps to finish the paintings:
1) First, I outlined the circles using a Zip Lock bag filled with white gesso (as if I'm decorating a cake). Then, I just added gesso to the remaining white part of the canvases. I scraped the gesso to make linear marks using a big toothed comb. Then, I let the whole thing dry overnight.
2) As soon as the gesso was dry, I painted the outlines of the circles, overlapping with some of the gesso outline. The colours I used were Burnt Sienna and Renaissance Gold.
This is what the final piece looks like:
And, this is what the paintings look like hanging at the wall of my lounge:
So, yeah. After almost two years, I'm done with these canvases. Now, on to the next project. 😉
