The Well

This is a new oil and pen on canvas, 30 x 40 inches, titled "The Well". I've added a new element to this one wherein I'm using a looser, more expressionistic, background. I like the contrast between the graphic cellular forms on top against a stormy background. Using oil on top makes the painting progress a little slowly as I have to wait for some things to dry before I can move. This is necessary to keep the clean graphic look. I've been thinking of switching to acrylic on top for a while but keep coming up with reasons not to. I like oil paint.
