Here's another w/c on gesso I completed. I've just felt like playing around with texture and color lately. I want to get some metallic paint and try adding that to a painting on the gessoed matboard. I'm not talking about the artist brand metallics but the oil based metallic paints that you can purchase at the hardware store. I think it would be cool to get some silver or gold into the act. Ann Blockley did a beautiful vignette of snowdrops that appears in her book. Her palette consisted mainly of white, warm yellows and black with a bit of woodsy green. Then she added gold metallic oil based paint to areas of the background and the entire painting began to shine in more ways than one. I loved the effect!
