Rays of Light - in progress

I started this painting several days ago and, in between a series of interruptions, was able to finish it today.  The canvas was heavily textured with a variety of mediums as well as a failed painting that I gessoed over.  I always like to start with some sort of line work to help me establish the composition.  Whether I decide to stick to that, is anybody's guess.

I continued to apply glazes of color to the canvas.  It's hard to see in these shots, but there are a lot of subtle variations in the color and depth of the tones.


I think it's finished.  Tomorrow I'll try to
take better pictures, if it's not so miserably
cold outside!

It really is so amazing to be able to see how you get from point A to point B with your paintings... thank you for taking time to document the process.
