Blue and Gold

Sounds like a great combination right? So why was it so difficult to get the right look? I spent most of the day trying to get the right mix of both colors.  It was too much, too little, too blotchy, too distressy, too chalky you get the idea. The weather today was dreadful, cold and rainy and absolutely no sunlight. Do you know how hard it is to paint without sunshine? It makes for a lot of frustration. It's suppose to be sunny later next week.  I will then take the benches outside a get a true look at them but until then this is the look for now. I used ASCP Ochre, Aubusson Blue and Rub 'N Buff Gold. To add a little interest I added jute.

BEFORE

Just getting started

Too much gold and not happy with distressing


Too chalky

Bad decision to add more gold.

Applied a wash of Aubusson Blue to cover gold and added jute on the bottom.

Looks much better :)

To be continued........when the sun comes out.
