A Closer Look

I'm back from my short break with a new little chickadee painting. This is a bit of a warm up to get back into painting after my week long break.

One of the things that I am really enjoying about the black gesso (using Golden brand) is how quickly and vibrant the paintings seem to be. The colours seem to jump off the page with a little bit of extra 'sparkle' that I don't seem to get with the white gesso. I'm not going to stop using white gesso.... but I think I'll go back and forth between the two.
