Into the Middle • 18x24 • Oil on raw linen
I've been trying new techniques with my oil painting. Studio paintings tend to get very meticulous when using the Mische technique of underpainting and glazing. Wanting to speed things up a bit a force myself to explore ala' prima painting, I have played with painting on a heavy toothed linen canvas. I really like the results. This piece took about 16 hours from beginning to finished painting.
