New Painting Started: Channel SurfingFebruary 21, 2016
This is a small painting sketch I’ve started, laying in just the undertones at this point. It’s based on a photograph of my friend, Maria, who was sitting in front of the TV changing channels. I’m painting in oil. The size is 9 x 12″.
The surface I’m working on is Wet Media polyester film from Grafix, which I’ve spoken of before. I’m trying to get more experience working on this surface. I didn’t use any thinner on this, but probably should have, since it will take longer to dry well enough to continue on. Next time I should try starting on a thinned layer of paint to keep it from being so slippery, and speed up the drying.
