Yesterday the wind stopped long enough for me to be outside and be able to spray over the webbing. I had a photo of many brightly colored nets and floats just heaped on the shore and loved the colors. There was a lot more red than you see right now. I'll have to develop the net structure throughout and decide where the floats are going to be. I love this part of the process and the colors turned out especially nice this time. I use the Dr. Ph. Martin concentrated pigments and spray them on the dampened surface of the AquaBord (12 x 36) in this case. This time I used yellow ochre, and permanent red, cad red, aqua, payne's gray and phalo blue. I never know how the colors are going to combine. I attempted to add some texture with other items placed on the sprayed surface but they don't really show up.
Sometimes I'm tempted to just leave the painting as is and I certainly will be enjoying it in this state for a few days while I decide on the next step. STAY TUNED! I love comments and feedback either here, Facebook or my email.
Sharing my paintings with others is one of the joys in my life. Educating others about how I paint and the media I use is very important and why I wanted to reach out through this blog. Hope you will add a comment about what you see. What else would you like to see here?.
