"Heron" 45 x32 cm
Acrylic and Gouache on Paper
I originally made this painting as preparatory work for a bigger, more complex series of pieces. The intention was to test my latest discoveries regarding the behavior of acrylic washes when used on primed paper and also to try out the color schemes I had in mind before actually starting the main images.
i got carried away and decided to finish it so the whole thing will become part of the series, there are some things i still don’t get the paint to do quite right but i feel this painting is an improvement and it gave me a lot of information to move into the next painting.
