|Priming the plywood with Gesso|
After making several sketches, taking photographs, visualising ideas and presenting suggestions, the idea I had was approved. I made a research on the best materials to use for an indoor environment with high humidity.
The choice of materials fell on marine quality plywood, primed 3 times on all surfaces. The art work would then be painted with Golden Open Acrylics and finally finished with 3 layers of varnish.
For practical reasons I divided the painting into two parts to be assembled later.
The choice of subject fell on a stormy sea with large waves breaking in the foreground. In the distance the nearby island of Hven can be seen.
|The basic colours of green, pale blue, turquoise and white are added.|
|Even though I had emptied the living room to use as a studio while I work|
on the painting, I still had to place the pieces at an angle to get them to fit in.
