Day seven…

Acrylic on 32"W x 36"H x 1.5" canvas
Available from: HERE

Day seven of the "30 paintings in 30 days" challenge.  This painting is part of a collection in which I have been experimenting with new techniques.  I am working here with creating more of a translucent surface.  This is difficult for me as I have been working opaquely for several years with lots of thick paint which creates lots of surface texture.  Nothing wrong with all that, just that I am in a season of desiring new things with my work.  I say all this and I found myself yesterday back to working with a palette knife and thick paint.  But, tomorrow….   Anyway, I am trying new things.

I hear you, wanting to add some new ideas/techniques but still remain connected to the essence of our voice. I'm thinking a blend of translucent and thick would be perfection :-) Beautiful piece, love the colours
