This is an oil on canvas covered board, 11x14. It is an exploration of a technique suggested to me by my teacher, Marilyn Dale. It was the initial attempt at the technique and as such (as far as the technique goes), not very good. However, as a painting, I like the piece.
The technique is this: Cover the canvas with a thin medium tone Burnt Umber. Use a cloth to wipe away paint and create the light areas of the piece. Add darks with undiluted Burnt Umber and feather (where necessary) with a dry brush. Sounds easier than it is.
