Lucky for me I had nowhere I had to be today. So what do you do when you are snowed in....
This where I stopped for today.
|18 x 18 inches, Acrylic on canvas|
Thought I would share the steps, layers, that got me to this point.
I started with base colors, flexible modeling paste, and really only the thought of sky. I wanted some wild texture to the first layer.
The mid point I let the texture dictate the ground. Nature is not perfect, and I wanted this to be part of the painting. If you think about painting every blade of grass the way you think it should be, reality is lost. Interesting thought that a little chaos and abstraction is more real than planned perfection. Ok that was a little deep, hope I do not get a head ache now.
Anyways, just thought I would share. Off to texture some more canvas before the roads are cleared here.
