There’s this painting that I did for my senior show. It was one in a series of nine, but I liked it the the least of all of them.
I don’t normally paint over paintings, but I made an exception in this case. It would have been faster and easier to use acrylics, but I didn’t think it was a wise idea to paint acrylics over oils, so I started filling in the spaces in between the branches with oil paint.
My plan was to go back and carefully paint closer to the branches, but I was really intrigued by the outcome. I love how you can still catch a glimpse into the landscape. It’s like looking through a keyhole. I don’t know if I’ll keep it like this, or what I’ll do, but I’m going to sit on it for a little while until inspiration strikes.
