Beach Walk

Beach Walk  12X18 Oil on Archival Panel  $150

This painting was an experiment in patience and many many layers of transparent paint.

I wanted to see what happens when you use a printers roller to spread paint on the surface.  I had scooped some thick paint on and some thinned paint on.  Then I started to roll the paint together.  The texture was interesting but didn't quite do it.  From then on I put layer after layer of transparent paint on and the texture remained.  For the longest time I kept looking at it knowing it wasn't quite there yet and then when finishing another painting that had a lot of deep orangey red in it I knew just a touch of that color in the foreground  would do it.
