Day 2 - In Progress - Original Abstract Painting by Texas Contemporary Artist Filomena de Andrade Booth

Day 2

This is the result of the second day's work on this painting. I started by laying in color over the original "gridwork" of day 1.  I used a mix of gloss medium, slow-dry medium and clear mixing glaze to create glazes of color and to help slow down the quick drying acrylics.  I also sprayed water on the still wet acrylic to help blend the colors.  In some areas, I wiped out color, exposing underlying color and marks from day 1.  As I worked, I continued to make more markings on the canvas with the black crayon.

The beauty of painting like this is that everything is a discovery and I never know where I'll end up.

Stay tuned for Day 3
