Cave Canem

Cave Canem, 2010: Acrylic on Canvas, 12'' by 12'' NOT FOR SALE
This is the beginning of a painting that I have promised my boyfriend. I thought I would record the process of this painting. As you can see the darker brown areas in this picture are still wet, I just stopped working. I like to usually work starting on a dry canvas, so I will do a layer, let it dry and then go back in and continue to layer over it. This may happen once or dozens of times until I feel that the painting is complete. Sometimes the complete painting does show the original layer and sometimes it comes out completely different. I did use some molding paste in the ochre to give it more texture.
