I did a quick study of lily pads. I used gold leaf to prime the wood. Acrylic paint and collaged pieces of paper were used on top of that. In total the painting took about one hour.
In addition I am beginning to work on paper. I want to start combining the texture and color I get through painting and collaging with charcoal and pastel drawing. I am unable to draw with charcoal on the wood panels I am presently painting on. Hopefully I will have a paper painting/drawing to post within the next week.
