Day 40: on the road

Process, Shadows

Medium + Method: Acrylic. Brush, wooden cuticle pusher.

The Backstory: What if instead of layering, I used the tried and true carving technique with a single layer rather than a double? See above. The paint dried too quickly to carve elegantly, leaving me to scratch ferociously at the canvas paper to create the line. (Note: I had to discard the retarder I brought on the road after the epic fail of Day 39; I believe it was the culprit behind the streakiness.) Yes, universe, I hear you. No more carving, at least for a few days.
