The Swamp 12 x 36 acryllic on canvas
the finished painting shot in full sunlight at the Artisans' Guild
This the first step Actually this is several steps in but I decided I didn't like it Do over
this was after recoating it with gesso some of the color still shows thru and I started adding more color and changing the direction of the dripping
I have found the design at this point and trying to increas the contrast, this is always the hard part with this process because darkening means covering up layers below. I'm using very transparent paint so I can keep those layers showing.
More spatter and drips and going in and blotting out areas that I didn't want At this point I turned it over and liked it better that way the bottom became the tops
