Acrylic on Linen

130x90cm acrylic on linen

100x70cm Ecoline, graphite, acrylic spray paint 
The first painting is acrylic on linen. Just like with the painting on linen from last week, it was sized with transparent acrylic gel. Because of a tendency to over work, I am stopping when I feel like the paintings are "full". I didn't want to go over with other layers of shapes because the painting seems finished. Probably the fact that the ground is a color helps speed up the process. I like doing these one day paintings. It is an exercise in restraint.  I went a little wild with the spray paint on the work on paper, but the way the spray paint sticks to the Ecoline when it is slightly damp creates an interesting effect.
