The Ocean -WIP Canvas

Tonight’s piece  started out very bright. 

Bright golden yellow, phthalocyanine blue, grey, and black. Then I started adding white gesso in swirls and streaks. I covered the canvas in white which mixed with the wet colours underneath. I then started removing it in large stripes with my wedge catalyst tool (don’t worry, I didn’t waste the paint, it was used for a art journal page base). I added a little bit more white gesso as bright spots then sprayed it down heavily with water. 

I tilted the canvas to allow the water and paint to drop down it until I was happy. 

I’m not sure it’s done. I might add more to it. I do love this how it is though. I’m not sure.
