In this painting, I threw economizing brushstrokes to the wind, and used as many as it took to capture the movement of the water and action of the kayaker. I blocked in the painting using transparent colors and then built up with transparent and opaque mixes--a technique I learned in Dreama Tolle Perry's workshop that I took last fall. Some areas have a lot of paint and some not so much. I have been experimenting with different ways to start a painting including using a toned panel (usually in transparent red oxide), a white panel, and using the transparent block-in technique. Personally, I like to challenge myself and experiment because I always learn something new.
