Oil on Ampersand Gesso Board. 12″ x 16″
First oil …almost. I had a brief accidental collision with oils this summer during IMC.
After nearly a 2 year wait, Andy, my atelier teacher, finally felt I was ready to paint.
This was a highly anticipated event. This is a 3 hour long alla prima done with
raw umber and black. Using the wipe out method, painted on Ampersand Gesso board.
I’ve been dreaming about painting. My first time felt really remarkable. Also reading
Alla Prima by Richard Schmid which is getting me even more excited. -Z
