These are the final two paintings from the class, Between Speech and Silence with instructor/artist Diane Culhane. I learned a lot about painting although I don't think you can tell from these two pictures. The one on the right has a layer of beeswax on top. In person it gives it a soft translucent finish. I plan on finishing the one on the left the same way so I can hang them together or at least they will look the same.
Acrylic, glazing medium, collage, beeswax
This is a close up of scraffitto, scratching into the paint while it is wet.
I definitely will keep practicing.
