Quiet Time (Daily painting, landscape)

9 x12 inches

Acrylic on Ampersand Gessobord

This was an experimental painting. I used a subtractive method. First I stained the board with light warm tones, and let it dry. Then I added the dark colors and I wiped out the tree trunks with a small brush. So thefirst part was done with very thin paint. Then I loaded up the brush with thick paint for the leaves and the reflections. I have to admit, it took a couple of tries, but I like the mood it left behind.
