In critiques from one professor, I was instructed not to bring all areas of a piece up to the same level of finish. In this painting and a sister one I took that idea to an extreme. I left one side of each painting less finished.
This painting is a good example of layered glazes of acrylic. You can see one color through another. I started working this way following my college watercolor experiences.
acrylic on canvas, 15" x 30"
