November 2011: The moon over the cattails

The Cornfield moon sketch became...

Sketchbook drawing.
Sketch from September 12, 2011.

Drawing out the images.
...The moon over the cattails. (This happens sometimes with me, as I am working on a piece it says something entirely different than the title of the original sketch.)

Applying pigments to the linen surface.
I apply pigment with a brush and by rubbing the organic material into the linen. I apply a coat of Acrylic Glazing Liquid over the color areas as they are applied.

Wet pigment.
This view shows color on November 9, 2011.

Window with wet finished work.

The window frame allows me to see what the finished stretched on panel front view will look like.
