This is the first painting I've done in years.
It's quite large and done with acrylics on board.
There are several layers of clear coat over it which give it a lovely depth.
There's no clear coat under the umbrella, which is probably a little cheesy and obvious but it does create a lovely tactile quality.
This is also the first image on this blog created without the magic of a Wacom tablet. Posted by Hello

That's Awesome Elliot! Great depth technique, you got there. Hope to see some more paintings from you.

Heya Kristen.
I'm thrilled you can see the depth in this one.
There are 10 or so layers of clearcoat over 10 or so layers of paint dribbles.
The clearcoat created a depth that was suprising (and delightful).
As I think I've said before, I don't tend to paint much as I don't have the patience to let it dry.
Doing this was pretty exciting however and I'm sure I'll tackle another one soon.
