Instead of painting over an old painting for this one, I found an old piece of unused canvas and stretched it onto an old stretcher frame. I am having the time of my life painting broad messy strokes...like my ink paintings only blown up in size. I took some advice I got recently at an art critique as well, and painted some with a palette knife as well as an old toothbrush. This is the first layer, but I am very excited about it. I felt like this one started painting itself, and that hasn't happened in a long time.
