In Season

Freshly finished, this 18 x 24 canvas has multiple layers of reverse painting, alternating between the negative and positive spaces. It has a representation of all four seasons in one piece.

To start with, it looked like a big mess! If you look close, you can see that I added in some map pages and Citra Solv papers as well as lots of paint, spray inks, stenciling and more.

Then I painted around leaves and flowers with a coat of gesso.

In the next layer, I isolated a couple of trees and a few birds.

I added autumn leaves and winter snowflakes to the summery leaves and spring flowers.
