A Grateful Spirit
16" x 20"
This painting reflected my feelings at the time. I was very grateful for some positive health news of a loved one and had the sudden urge to paint. I set to work, visualizing a semi-abstract landscape with a high horizon line,then painted in warm, earthy tones. This work took ages to complete ,as, after the initial gesso layer, the composition was set with gels and soft molding paste, applied with a palette knife and allowed to dry overnight. The painting has many layers (glazes) of transparent acrylic paint, with each layer/glaze of colour required to dry completely before the next glaze can be applied. Layers of yellow, then light red, some magenta, more reds, until finally, I was done.
This is an acrylic and mixed medium painting, done on canvas.
