I barely made it to this exhibit. But I managed to submit something just in time.
I decided to start with a black ground.
I began painting most of the elements in grisaille with the intention of glazing in the colors for the final stages.
Some flat elements were rendered in acrylic.
I didn’t color in everything though. I still left some portions in monochrome.
Here’s the 3 x 5 ft. finished piece.
