Ice ..10" x 12" ..o/p
A little "Mom and Pop" country convenience store is the subject of today's near spring painting.
It appears to me that they have one of everything in stock that one could ever want to purchase. If by chance you do not see what you want, asking will make it suddenly appear from a back storage room, or so it seems.
I used a slightly tinted panel (pink) that had two coats of gesso applied to the surface. I left the gessoed surface unsanded. I like the texture of the brush strokes that tend to appear through the thinner washes of colour.
The palette that I used was my 'warm and cool' ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, cad.yellow med., cad. lemon yellow, alizarin, cad.red and titanium white. I also had a raw sienna on my palette.
My odourless mineral spirits was used sparingly at the beginning layout stage and increased as the painting progressed.
Spring is in the air !
