|Oil on canvas, 20 x 16 inches|
One of the advantages to oil and acrylic paint is how layering can be used. Thought I would share this painting, where it started to how it was finished. I started with a textured grey tone gesso, a slightly rough patchy texture, when it was dry sketched in my idea with vine charcoal, and white pastel. The first layer is a colorless, using only the light and darks as my guide.
