This painting was a brilliant red tree when I entered the studio and it came out blue. That sounds like one of those old jokes "What went upstairs black and white and came down red", but that's the magic of being an artist, you can create and change worlds at the touch of a brush.

I've had several sittings with this painting and was never satisfied when the paint dried and darkened. Today I decided to return most areas to Titanium white, but retain the general composition. I intended going green, but the painting had different ideas.

As for my 30 paintings in 30 days goal of playing with textures and mediums, here I used almost everything in my paint box over the many versions. The final layer is liquid acrylic, heavy body acrylic and acrylic ink but there is a great deal of gel and modeling paste under the surface.

30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS - Day 18


As a special gift to fellow artists I am allowing you to post on my blog during the 30 in 30 Challenge. I'm using the same type of system as Leslie Saeta, so if you're participating it will be easy. Please post  with YOUR NAME ONLY (not the painting's name or your business name) and a link to your web presence. 

Posting ends at midnight each day and voting begins. Voting is open on all the previous days blogs from January 1st until January 31st. Three votes for each person every day. Voting opens when posting closes and continues till 31st January 2015. At close of voting the three most popular paintings rise to the top and remain there forever.

All I ask in return is to spread the word and offer your buddies a chance to win prizes. If you blog, link to your entry on it.
