Oil on Thick Gallery Wrapped Canvas
This painting started out with a solid layer of red paint.
From there, I did a simple drawing with very light, thin paint.
I mixed a few colors I thought I might like to use on my palette.
I then started with brushwork but still staying thin with my paint, being careful not to cover up all of my red undercoat. After I was happy with my colors on the canvas, I went back in with thicker paint with my brushes and palette knives. Again, being careful not to cover up all my red beneath. Lastly, I did some scraping with the side of my knife in the foreground which gives us more grass like shapes and again, more undercoat to show through.
