Light & Dark Path – South Slough

by on Aug.19, 2012, under Collages, South Slough Area

Started a new painting for the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) Pathways Series. It is 24 x 30 inches and a past unsuccessful painting. So far, I have used Acrylic Paint, Acrylic Inks, Papers, Gold Leaf, Brushes, Pencils, Brush Handles, hands, and at the end of the cycle I pressed the disposable palette here-and-there into the painting before tossing the palette. Now, it needs to dry before more layering.

“Into the Light” – Acrylic/Mixed – 24 x 30 inches
