Booth Number: A 7
I start with orange undercoat to warm the painting.
Scene sketched onto canvas, then first coat of paint covers the entire canvas to allow balancing of shapes and values. Additional layers of paint applied transparently and opaquely with brush & pallet knife, textured to give body and define 3 dimensional sense to painting. Painting starts out very impressionistic then resolves into representational as many paint layers are added.
