Acrylic on Canvas 20cmx20cm
Given the limitations in what I can manage with my ’finger-painting’ style, and the small canvas (20cmx20cm), I chose to use one of Agnes Marin’s banded stripes of colour from her period in Taos, New Mexico rather than her ’grid’ paintings.
I found the process mesmerising and became fixated on working within the boundaries. Constantly thinking about next steps as the tone of the painting changed continually with each layer of wash.
I’m not sure there is an end to the painting, and a wash of acrylic primer may mute the colours. I eventually ran out of time!
