|Green and Orange Pumpkins, 14x18, oil on canvas|
I painted this over an old varnished painting. I did remove the varnish but it leaves the old paint tacky unless you let it dry again. I did not have time to wait for it to dry so what that means is that the new paint melds into the old and light colors become darker and dark colors get lighter. In other words a lot of mediums show up. I put many layers on this to get it this "light." I do like painting on the tacky surface as the paint drags across it and lets the old painting show through.
