Beginning of new painting on hardware store panel


I know if you read my last post about my trip to the hardware store, you MUST be on the edge of your seat wondering how my painting on the wood panel is turning out. This is the beginning stage of my new painting. Clearly the fish need a lot more detail. I work by building up thin layers of paint, so it is a process. I am my worst critic, but surprisingly I am liking how the wood grain mimics a swimmy, watery effect. As you might know, most of my paintings lately have focused on the contrast between man-made patterns and organic forms. This painting is taking a naturally occurring pattern and combining it with natural forms. ENJOY
