mixed media on canvas, 3 x 3 feet

Here is my most recent painting. I like painting on wood panels, so I tried just tacking a canvas to the wall, to have that hard, flat backing. That way, I could still be rough with it and not get line marks from stretcher bars. This piece is inspired by a small 8×8 inch study I did a few months ago. It’s acrylic, collage, and oil crayon. I used the pallete knife a lot. I’m in love with the texture it creates on top of the collage…and the oil crayon on top of that. (see details below.) The colors aren’t quite right in these photos, but it’s close enough. Boy, painting big is really fun…
