Nothing Ever Stays the Same and Nothing’s Explained in Progress

Here’s a photo of the progression of the sign painting that I’m working on. This is the first stage and it involves using thinned ultramarine blue oil paint to cover the background that is going to be black. Today I’m going to finish painting the sign and when I’m done, I’ll paint the background with black that I make using Burnt Sienna and Ultramarine Blue. After I paint the background black, I’ll use a balled-up T-shirt to flatten the brush strokes and create a muted surface.
