Here is a small piece of an 11x14 inch painting I started today. I don't think I'll get back to it tonight and so I wanted to share it's beginning. I started by painting very thin layers of a subtle blue-gray and some medium gray oil bar and then after fusing each of those layers together added a semi transparent graphite gray layer of wax. In between the layers I also did a lot of scraping back to get a semi-flat but mottled sky. The ground where the words are layered is a smokey greenish gray that I love.
This painting is sure to change as I add more layers and details but in the end I know it will include a bed, some stars, and a few dream jars....have a good night and sweet dreams!
