The Grotto

This piece didn’t take long at all to complete, it’s almost like it painted itself.

Working with something called Medium W (not sure what that stands for) proved to be hugely beneficial, in that I didn’t have a single migraine as I worked on the piece, which is a kind of miracle to me. It took a bit to get used to the way it interacts with the quick-dry medium I like to use. And I was unable to form a glaze with Medium W by mixing pure pigment into it, which was kind of a let-down. But I live and learn, and in the end I think the resulting piece is quite successful.

Here are a few work-in-progress images:

And here is the finished piece:
