I have a solo show in May 2011 so I got busy yesterday.
Primed 24 bare canvases.
with a mixture of blue, purple and black gesso.
It makes a navy under-painting the shows through when I paint.
Gives a nice glow to the finished painting.
The 14 8"x10" canvases will be a series.
from Blick to do another series.
I like using a color gesso under-painting.
Adds another dimension to the painting.
The photograph of the Kankakee swamp is the subject.
The finished painting will be spring tones.
The inspiration is the photo below I took in the 70's.
My theme is "Walk through the woods with me"
my favorite place to be.
I just like the way they curled. Great shapes.
