The Vast Unsayable Layer 5

I thought it would be interesting to document the progress of a painting and how much change can occur with the addition of one layer of color. I’m newly in love with a Charvin green grey paint and instead of glazing on top of the earthy colors (see post the Vast Unsayable Layer 4), I decided to scumble with the lighter, opaque paint. This creates a kind of broken color effect and allows those earthy reds and pinks of the underlayer to show through. I did, however, add a glaze of green shade to the bottom section. Still a couple of layers to go, but loving it so far. This painting is 30×40 and will be shown at my studio/gallery with my other Reading Rilke Paintings through the month of May with an opening reception May 7th from 6pm to 9pm.
