oil on wood panel, 24 x 24 inches, completed March 2016
I have finally given in and let my feeling for color and the paint take over. In my below "selfie" photo the unfinished version shows. The white area on the top right was such an obstacle, I tried to repaint it numerous times, then when I finally took it out it brought the entire piece together.
This painting has underpainting, direct thick brushwork, glazing and scumbling techniques.
