Watch me make a painting – Step 3

Standard

In my last post, I started a new “vine” painting and showed you the first two steps.  Today, we move to step 3.  To complete the “under-painting”, I added lots of pieces of colored paper to the panel.  I kept the colors bright and bold, weaving and overlapping them to create a surface of bold color and heavy texture.  I added several more layers of paper over these initial paper layers shown below.  All of the paper was coated with acrylic medium on both sides to glue it to the surface and protect the surface.  It looks like a hot mess now, doesn’t it?!  Step 4 will be posted tomorrow, and you’ll see how I resolve all of this random color into a coherent design.
