The Wait

I approached this painting with a new layering technique. White wash everything. In the early stages, a solid layer of white was put over the painting every time I used a new color. Toward the later stages I became more selective. The whites are intense in person. By underpainting with cool and warm tones, the white grew its own form. I feel good with the range of colors I used. In past paintings, I limited myself too much.

  1. This is one of my favorites. Particularly for the colors, but also for the movement and shape.
