Oil Painting Techniques
I really like layering complimentary color glazes over each other. In the painting above, I initially had hatch marks in the sky, similar to “Sidewinder” but wasn’t happy with it. I took a big squeegee and exposed more of the reflection of the metal panel, pulling the color out of the sky and letting it overlap the surrounding areas. You can see the hatch-mark remnants at the top of the sky. I really like having some type of threshold to create space. Going under the overpass in this panting is a bit less traditional as it is above rather than below the main focus of the piece.
