A 7" x 9" acrylic painting on gessoed heavy acid-free artist's paper. The spring foliage was just coming out on this long, thin line bordering a field.....bold clouds threatening nothing.....Saturday morning.
There should be something that I know about how the picture will proceed, and there should be a fair bit that I do NOT know. One thing that I am conscious of in the last few paintings is that I'm dragging the paint across in a slightly different way with my largest brush....it feels a bit like petting the cat against the grain....but the cat doesn't seem to mind....seems to lend a slightly different expression to the paint here.
