layers 2, 3 and 4



Layer 2: I wanted to add some more color and keep it loose! Still having fun.


Layer 3: I started seeing trees so I went with it and it started getting pretty hectic.


Layer 4: I added “mist” aka titanium white in an attempt to calm things down and now I’m not loving it but, the great thing is, I can paint over the entire thing if I want to!

I’m starting a new challenge for myself through a local art store. The challenge is to paint 30 layers on one canvas by the end of August. It’s all about the process and letting your painting just take you where it takes you. I’m excited and nervous to get started but I think it’s going to be a good challenge for me. I can paint when I have time for it and hopefully not worry so much about it being perfect.  I wanted to kind of let loose with color and keep it abstract for this first layer. I took inspiration from a magazine illustration and I’m loving the bright colors. Here is layer one!
