WHAT LIES BENEATH!





I had only enough time today to paint this one 5 x 7 rectangle.  Right now I am only using 3 colors: white, ultramarine and burnt sienna.  The white and sienna are heavy open acrylics but the blue is an acrylic ink.  I am trying to leave the tone of the under layer showing through but I am having to make corrections along the way which results in covering up.  I am not drawing the image before painting but just massing in the shapes with light value and dark value while leaving the paper as the mid value.  I am going to leave the white alone for now.  When all nine sections are complete, I will evaluate the overall effect and possibly glaze much of the white.   So far I am pleased with the effect.

Traveling again over the weekend but then back at work on Tuesday.

This is marvelous! I love the almost haunting effect you've achieved with the painting too.
