MARINE

Marine
2011, 12 x 9 inches, encaustic on panel
In progress here...I hadn't realized I'd photographed it upside down for Wednesday's post.

I'd planned for the blues to be darker but they would not comply. It truly seemed that the paint had other ideas. So I got out of the way and this is the result. Sometimes one has to let it be.

the perfect title..i actually really like the darker and lighter strips within the left field, it's showing lots of transparency, and the light that's coming out from the dividing line - divine! i'd love to see this as a 60'x9' painting

Michele-
It would be quite a different painting in a large format (yes, in inches not feet!) Note to self: consider doing some larger works.
