Phase I of Abstract Painting Process

Phase I of Abstract Painting Process

Phase I is applying the first undercoat of a semi-translucent layer of a single color. This is the first layer that will often dictate the rest of the direction of the subsequent layers of oil paint. I will often apply the next several layers of color while the original layer is still wet, so that the coats of paint will mix with one another on the canvas. Phase II posted tomorrow.

This is the start of a painting.
