|A12 x 9 inches, Acrylic on canvas, "Spring in a Bottle"|
Once I knew what to paint, I needed a plan. Knowing there would be a lot of white and light shades in the painting, decided to use an opposite for the base; a black canvas.
Wanting to have a softness to it, most of the painting was done by a technique called scrubbing. Using a mainly a hog bristle brush the paint is put down with a scrubbing motion.
I would let one layer of color dry then scrub in the next.
Only a few fluid brush strokes were used here and there for detail.
It is always good to have an idea and a plan of attack when you are painting:)
