Gridded Painting

image

I had an urge to paint late last night.

I pulled out several previously painted incomplete pieces and chose this one to work on.

It was done with Seta Color transparent paints with leaves to give it detail.

I did the vertical bars first. I thought I would have to wait until this morning to do the horizontal bars. I had placed in under a ceiling fan and it dried quickly enough so I could do the second layer.

This is a study piece for some other larger pieces I’d like to do.

I used Silk Screen paint for this one. I have 3 other types of paints I’d like to try this with on other study pieces. I then can decide if I want to work on the large piece I originally had the idea to do this to.

The translucency is wonderful. It looks pieced!
