I am starting to enjoy the use of acrylic paint for the under-painting. It allows me to work farther into a painting in one session and allows the painting to maintain a certain vibrancy that is hard to achieve with oil paints alone. I make go back on the left side to add more detail. I have learned that there are infinite ways to paint clouds and water. The key is to add many colors and work them towards one another.

I love working on highly textured surfaces. Lots of scraping and laying on of thick paint involved. I enjoy creating a mural-like scene. I guess a part of me thinks back to my upbringing in Bronx, New York. Since I was a child, I was always interested in murals and the textures around me–bricks, cement, and walls. I loved watching the way old buildings decayed to reveal interesting colors and patterns beneath the surface.
