Am I ready? Yes. Feeling some trepidation? Um, yeah. Curious to see what happens next? You bet!
Here are some shots of me prepping the raw birch panel for conversion into a big, beautiful, cloud-filled Aeroscape.
|The Source: An Afternoon of Dynamic Clouds Over Santa Fe|
|Sanding the 47" x 70" birch panel that will be the foundation for Aero No. 28.|
|Applying the final coat of tinted Liquitex Gesso to the panel.|
|Primed and on the wall. The beginning of Aero No. 28 (Santa Fe Cloudscape)|
|A little grid help to help keep the drawing on point. I am pretty precise with the prep, the drawing, the paint color mixing, BUT…once the paint starts to hit the panel, it becomes an expressive, liberating free-for-all.|
