Just a start..

This is a paint-over of an ugly painting I painted several years ago. It has two layers so far. White gesso and cheapo brown paint for a base over that. I am trying to use all of my cheaper acrylics for the under painting layer. I am not sure what this will be. I just did a little scratching for some texture. It was fun putting on the brown paint. I did it with one of those things that handymen use for smoothing something. Tomorrow---or whenever I will finish this one. I am sure not of the brown will show but it's a good warm up anyway.

Hi Martha,
I like it already! The brown with while showing through makes a good texture and ooohh! I love the scratching--can't wait to see the next step.

So far, so good! The white scratching is very appealing against the brown.
