As time goes on, I find myself experimenting with new ways to paint using watermedia. For my painting, Primitive, I first applied several layers of crumpled tissue paper in order to create texture. My original plan was to paint a water scene, but the painting went in another direction as I continued working. The abstract elements led me to begin working it as a landscape. I applied many more layers, constantly checking the results in a mirror as well as upside down, until I was satisfied with the “feeling” of the painting. I see the final result as a place that is peaceful and untouched by man, which is why I chose the title, Primitive.
