A Research Trees Painting

Notes From my Tree Journal

Today I decided to do some experimenting on a 9x12 inch painting. I started it recently with abasic block in with opaque acrylic application. Today, rather than carrying on in my usual method of opaque layers, I decided to use thin layers mixed with glazing medium for each application. It is a different look and more luminous than the method I usually use. I have seen a lot of acrylic work with multiple thin layers and never much cared for it, but this is a bit different because the initial block in is opaque. It was intriguing and interesting, so I will try again tomorrow with another 9x12 that I blocked in a couple of weeks ago. If that one goes well, I will next try this technique with a stretched large format painting to see how it goes.
