16" x 20" oil on stretched canvas
Experimentation resulted in this mountain/valley scene right out of my head.
I started by using a light neutral color and one in a bright mid-dark range. Using a large brush and just letting the paint go where it wanted resulted in the basic values. Then I laid crumpled plastic wrap on the wet oil paint, pressed it down lightly and quickly lifted it.
By turning the canvas around and over, I began to see a scene form. Using the brush, I started pushing the paint around until the mountains formed. Then came the midground.
After the basic shapes dried, I added small details. I'm still not sure whether it's finished yet. It might not be. But maybe it is.
