The first painting is acrylic on linen. Just like with the painting on linen from last week, it was sized with transparent acrylic gel. Because of a tendency to over work, I am stopping when I feel like the paintings are "full". I didn't want to go over with other layers of shapes because the painting seems finished. Probably the fact that the ground is a color helps speed up the process. I like doing these one day paintings. It is an exercise in restraint. I went a little wild with the spray paint on the work on paper, but the way the spray paint sticks to the Ecoline when it is slightly damp creates an interesting effect.
