This series is all 12" x 12" cradled panels, 1 inch deep. The medium is traditional oil paints mixed with Dorland's Cold Wax Medium.
I used a palette knife to add the paint and after it dried to the touch I scratched through the paint with a sharp needle tool.
I used ink brayers and a 4' squeegee on this one, and scratched though to the various layers.
This is one of the Patera Series for the Emporium show, that was not ready. I had applied the paint very thick so it took a while to completely dry. Patera is a bowl or vessel used in ancient Rome for drinking or pouring.
This piece is painted on heavy 300 lb handmade watercolor paper with a deckle edge. More paint is needed when painting on paper as the first layer gets absorbed, and the heavy texture of the paper leaves small white indentions where it is lower than the surface. The first coats were applied with a palette knife, then a brayer and squeegee. I did like the finished product very much and was able to scratch and remove paint in much the same way as on a wood panel.
