11"x14" acrylic on slate SOLD
This is a little different. Firstly, it is a remembered landscape, meaning that I took a drive with my sister-in-law on a back road and decided to study a spot and later paint it from memory. Two ladies in black with red mittens caught my attention. To get the feel for a deep forest I dribbled black paint onto the slate first, blowing it around and dripping it until I thought it resembled trees. Then I painted in the background, path, people and underbrush. I am experimenting, trying to find the best subject and techniques to use on the slate. I think I am beginning to come up with a plan that pleases me. The next few I do will be quite different, so stay tuned in!
