A little experiment (and then some…)

A little experiment (and then some...)
“Seeking Balance” – acrylic and impasto on 12 x 24″ canvas

This work was something entirely new for me to try:
Step 1. Applied impasto and using palette knife, create texture – let dry.
Step 2. Applied Titanium White rather evenly – let dry.
Step 3. Applied primary and a couple of secondary colors in rectangular shapes to cover canvas – let dry.
Step 4. Applied secondary and a couple of primary colors in rectangular shapes to some areas – let dry.
Step 5. Applied Lamp Black to create frames to selected areas – let dry.
Step 6. Cover with Titanium White, leaving out original areas where frames were made.

Six steps, two weeks to complete (as I could only spare an hour or two in the evening), and I had too much fun!

Art is good for one’s soul…

  1. Experimenting is such great fun, and opens so many ideas. Much better than playing it safe, I’ve found. By the way – I love the Paul Klee quote at the top of your blog! Thanks for posting and visiting my blog.
