Swirl 9X9 oil and cold wax on gesso coated panel $75
The panel has three coats of gesso and then layers of oil and cold wax with palette knife painting. It is an interesting technique and challenge in that the many layers that I potentially put on show through to the layer above. I ignored the swirls that I put in until it started coming together and then the swirls seemed to be perfectly placed.
The moral of the story is to not let frustration take over. Keep on going and it will come together. Could be a life story in there somewhere.
