I'm Home!

It feels so good to be back in the studio! This is my first regular Thursday and first painting finished in what seems like ages. It's so restorative for mind, body and soul. I wish you could really see the texture on this up close. I'm having fun with this technique. I'm starting the canvas with a palette knife application of a red acrylic, nice and thick and leaving ridges. When that's dry I start putting down the cool colors and sanding between layers. In some places I drybrush to enhance the texture and in some I leave the red ridges showing through.
Ok, off I go to start on the next one.....
have a great day,
