Mystery, oil and mixed media on canvas
This painting started with random strokes of resist when I was painting some collage paper. I didn't want to waste the paint that was going over the edge of the paper so I grabbed some gessoed canvases to use as the table top. Then I randomly added some aggressive strokes of color that worked very much like a Notan. The next step was to add collage paper in areas. When it was dry I topped the surface with clear gesso. Then I painted the intuitive landscape with oil.
I have decided to join Dreama Tolle Perry in her online oil painting course. The colors that I've used here are her color selection. I am hoping this will bring me back to my oil paints with a lot of vigor and intuition.
Blessings for a great day.
