Emerald Eden

Emerald Eden

Piece description from the artist

The technique I use includes an underpainting which is the first layer of paint on the canvas that I permanently affix with an alcohol wash. While the underpainting can't really break a painting, because it can be fully covered up, it can certainly enhance it. This painting, "Emerald Eden," is a perfect example of this. Knowing how well green and purple speak to each other, I used different values of purples in the underpainting and let them strategically peek through as I applied layers of cool and warm greens on top.
