Back to work! Again!

Well, after a few weeks of spring cleaning, a mission trip, a porch & patio party, and garden projects, I’m back at the easel with this new one in the works. It’s 18x24, I’ve started the underpainting in acrylic, and I plan to finish it in oils. That’s allowed, you know. You can paint with oil over acrylic, but not the other way around, unless you want the painting to crackle on purpose. Hmmm ... I may try that sometime, just out of curiosity, just to see what happens.

I mean, the universe wouldn’t implode or anything if one painted with acrylics over oils.

Would it?

Thanks for sharing your process. It's fascinating to follow your progress on a painting. Your colors are always beautiful.
