Just a little glimpse into some extra behind the scenes stuff . . . this is 20" x 20" and has lots of layers and glazing and thick to thin paint. I'm playing around here with technique too. This takes a pretty long time to make, but it's what I'm doing when I'm not painting directly from observation. p.s. it's not finished yet. . . I'm thinking of starting another blog, of paintings that are happening beyond the viewfinder - what do you think?
