mixed media, 8.5×7″
This scraped acrylic painting on matboard had a bright green painted background and an old scrape of paint earlier today. I overscraped some blues and greens and a little transparent white. Some of the ultrabright green ground showed around the perimeter of the scraped painting, and I didn’t like it that much anymore (and the side of the scraper had messed up one of the sides).
On my messy art table, I noticed a strip of silk sari material that I had ironed for possible use in a different piece. I liked the silk color with this painting: it helped tone down the bright green, as well as added some pattern and framing.
