Acrylic on Canvas
Here are some "in progress" shots of this painting.
I textured the canvas heavily with modeling paste before washing in the color. To create movement and a composition, I "drew" in line work with black paint. At this point, the painting began to suggest plant forms blowing in the wind. I blocked in more color and obliterated areas with gesso. As the painting developed, I started to define the forms with heavier layers of paint.
I enjoy experimenting with textures and watching the painting develop as I play with the various elements until I'm finally satisfied with the result.
