I intend to let this dry overnight and come back with black oil pastel to draw my shapes, then fill in with intense, symbolic, emotional colors. Yay, kind of.
The Rage Series is being done on acid-free foam core. This background was done with acrylic gel medium, mixed with Neutral Gray, Mars Black, Zinc White (sp?) for transparency, and Red Oxide. There is a bit of dryer Burnt Umber and Raw Sienna in there. Yum and not.
Yesterday was a helluva pain day. See, I overdid it on Tuesday for my doctor appointment, which was a necessary thing, but waiting for the cab for an hour, not. Tried to do the right thing by taking the eco cab. They picked me up on the front end, but not the back end, apparently not enough cabs. So a long time of unsupported sitting. …. Long day. Woke up at 2 am with off the charts pain and thinking I had broken my new back? Not good. Emailed and called the surgeon — heard back — you are fine. Rested but in enormo pain.
Today much better, like Monday. Cool. Sent out my email update. Painted, as you see. Counseling via phone. Now, MUST go lay down, even with back brace on. Tomorrow? I do hope. So!
