|"Secret Society", mixed media painting|
To create the background layers of this painting I used some techniques (glazing, sgraffito and masking) that Diane Culhane demonstrated in her class, "Paint Your Garden" - the class that keeps on giving.
I have several canvases with backgrounds done in much the same way. I set them aside; later on I will return and continue painting :-)
Serendipity! Carla Sonheim is offering Diane's class again later this month. I highly recommend "Paint Your Garden".
