most of the time this is how i begin a painting. i draw with orange paint not much darker than the orange acrylic wash i use to get rid of the white gesso. then i plan a four to five value "road map" and paint those thinly in the appropriate shapes.
then i'm ready for thick juicy color with a good idea of what is what
had the show in key west last night and was very pleased to sell a bunch of paintings. big shout out to B and S from Sugarloaf, M and B from Elgin Lane KW and all who purchased my work. you made it a memorable night for me.
and thanks to Gallery on Greene and all who showed up there to see the work and support me. youre all the best!
