Every time I watch one of Chris Cozen’s videos on Artist’s Network TV, it’s not long before paint starts splashing over here.
I took the abstract Claybord experiment (elephant) painting from Friday, added a high-low application of black gesso, and used some of the lines created by the gesso to bring structure to my piece. I still don’t think this painting knows what it wants to be, and that’s ok for now. One thing I do know for sure is that I will be doing more paintings over black gesso in the near future. So much depth from the start, which is great! The challenge, for me, becomes how to bring in the light while retaining that depth. When I figure that out, I think I’ll be really jazzed with this technique. (Note: Purchases from this link help support my site.)
Happy June Sunday to all! I hope you either make something beautiful or make someone feel beautiful today. Peace.
