Deserted Insulbrick 8" x 10" O/P
The spring greens are still showing and the blossoms are in full bloom. Ahh, the aroma of spring! I know that there will be some question about the title and what is isulbrick ?
Insulbrick is not unlike the material that is used for the shingles that are applied to the roof. Insulbrick was applied to the outsides of homes or buildings of the past. The siding had a pattern applied to the surface that when seen from a distance, gave the building the appearance of being built out of our present day brick.
Today, it is not used by the building trades.
I primed the surface of this panel just before starting the painting, and used a variety of stains.
The palette for this painting was my usual limited palette. Alizarin, Ultramarine Blue ,Cadmium Lemon Yellow and Titanium White made up this palette. I did have some Cerulean Blue that I used in the sky as well.
Ahhh Spring !
