Sea Greens

"Sea Greens"
5 x 5" oil on panel primed with acrylic ground for texture

It's been a long week of not being able to get to the studio..what with the snowstorm and some other annoying things.

So today was a lot of catch up conversations with my studio neighbors. One of my artist friends is working on a piece with lots of texture. I wanted to try to see what I could do with the materials I had on hand. 

This is a Gessobord panel that has pastel ground, an acrylic product, applied thickly. Then I oil painted over it. I was originally going to just let it be a textured painting with color, but it kepy edging toward an ocean/sea feel. And then again it could be clouds..or just an abstract.
