I've been invited to participate in this collaborative painting.
The first paint applications included a base coat of acrylic applied to double primed #12 canvas. A rough lay in of architectural shapes in pale green followed. Drips and spatters indicate where a garden "might" be...we're unsure at this point.
The finished painting will be abstracted...that we know for sure.

Light Up the Sky - progressing

16"x20" acrylic skyscape
I've worked a few more layers onto the sky, using mostly my fingers. A few sweeps here and there with a brush can be seen upon closer inspection. The colors are bold because I've used Golden Fluid Acrylic paints straight from the bottle, mixing them on my fingers and on the brush. A few more layers and I should be finished. Finger painting is fun!
