i am practicing recording the steps in the paintings but get involved with the process
and often do not click the first few steps. i will tell you about them...
i collaged a canvas board with paper that had paint on it.
after it dried i sanded it a bit. since the colors were still brighter
than I wanted for the background I put a wash on it.
while the paper was still damp,
then i added another wash and some background writing before
gluing down the image i chose.
after a few more layers, here is the finished piece.
