It started by accident while I was getting the gesso onto a newly stretched canvas. I decided to save a few steps and add some color in with the gesso.
I start out with acrylic paint, and then build up the oil paint after.
The depth was wonderful and I knew right away that I could add some of the details Ive already been experimenting with.
The result inspired me to start some others right away.
But alas I have not been able to capture that initial “WOW” I found with the first (but Ive also been using premade canvases, and that might be what is holding me back)
my paint pallet is getting interesting!
This painting has only gotten this far……….but Ive added many layers so far.
This one I decided to base off of clouds, and it has taken its own direction also
