Layering the Blues...

I like working with the blues.... they are all so pretty!!! This canvas is currently in progress on my table...and demolition is eminent in my art studio! I'm finally getting the stand-up work stations custom built for my studio..I can't wait! Hopefully there will not be so much downtime due to construction.. I'm hoping for one weekend and then back to business as usual.. take a look at the initial layers of this 18x24" painting, and I will show you the progress tomorrow!

This piece started out with a lot of very dark blue as the base..and I followed up with some teal and turquoise on top of that, making sure to keep the dark blue visible slightly. While the paint was still wet, I added some marks and then allowed everything to dry.. This is a great warm-up exercise to do before the more difficult layers come in to play...
