New Painting--Layer by Layer

This  was a  fun  one,  and  I'm  glad  I  decided  to  take  photos  of  the  process....

Started  out  with  a  12 x 18  birch  cradle  board--

 Lots  of  paint,  then  spritzed  with  water  and  blotted  up  for  making  that  depth  and  texture



......more  paint,  and  then  I  got  out  my  corrugated  cardboard  and  Catalyst  texture  tool 
for  some  mark-making

 ....and  this  is  when  I  get  lost  in  the  process  with  stencils, more  paint,  stamps, more  stencils, etc., etc.--and  also  using  that  extra  paint  to  make  some  papers  for  future  collage



loving  those  layers.....


....drawing in  my  composition--looking like  a  hot  mess  right  now.....

time to cover up some of that busy background--


..with  some  elephant  love...



in  the  sunshine.....



This  is  a  great  way  to  warm  up  and  play  with  paint,  and  not  worry  about  the  outcome,  because  after  all,  it's  just  paint,  and  you   can  always  cover  it  up.....or  not.....

And  for  all  of  you  in  the  U.S.--hope  you  have  a  Happy  Thanksgiving!
