|Block in on matt board with gesso/pumice surface|
One of the projects the group worked on was creating texture in an underpainting using acrylic ground or clear gesso. This is a technique I have done before and I happened to have a prepared board ready to paint. I decided to visit a favorite subject of mine.... the Lowcountry marsh.
I love how the texture allows me to suggest grasses. I will be doing more with this technique and will share details!
