This painting is 20" X 26". There are many layers of paint. A lot of scraping, covering, repainting. With acrylic, charcoal and some collage.
The surface is delicious. I hope you get to see it in person or at least enlarge the image so you can see a detail.
I added tiny accents of color, their locations determined by the shapes created when I drew the lines into the wet acrylic paint with a charcoal pencil. The strong, dark almost circle is a piece of Thai banana paper, brown, covered with pastel to push it back a bit and help it blend into the painting.
Just for fun, I'm showing here one of the layers under the finished piece. I started this in March, 2013.
