This is the end result of direct painting for two days. I like the way the images are floating on the surface of texture long ago established for another painting. These are markings into gesso. The color choice was delegated by the background but also depicts my mood these days. I go from extreme clarity to muddiness and back again. Below are the steps I took today to get to this image.
Next I added some darker values back into all three cores.
The painting will sit in the studio and simmer for a while where I will tweak it here and there.
