After the Swim
Acrylic on Paper
18 in x 24 in
A painting of one of my daughters done on gessoed bristol paper. Using acrylic paint, I could have painted directly onto the paper but I like to first give the paper a couple of coats of gesso. When applying the gesso, I use one of my older, beat up brushes. It is applied in sort of a haphazard fashion. In other words, it is not applied smoothly. I love painting on texture.
This painting was done a few years ago. The last week or so I've been doing a few quick paint sketches to get me back in the loop. They are similar in style to this painting. As soon as I get photos made of them, I'll post them.
