Sisters of the Burn

Posted by Peter Senesac on 2nd Apr 2019

This painting came about when prepping some panels for new work. I streaked some acrylic down the panel and instead of brushing it out I left the tree like shapes. Then as I began to add paint, the design began to come out. The title came after the fact on this one. the image reminded me of the look of field after a wild fire or controlled burn. Sometimes the title is first but this time I had no idea what this would become.

Prepping the panel. The trees showed up

Starting to block in the design with oil and wax for the first session

Second session I'm starting to add more color and dark and light values
