This painting will be the second for the series using scales stencils. The first of that series is becoming a bit more complicated than I wanted so this painting will be very simple -- just shapes and patterns.
Going back to using some stencils I made. I started with very thin Burnt Umber as the first layer then violet scales pattern and a splash of green/turquoise. I used canned air to spray the green after it was applied and I like the effect however, the canned air scared me a little bit. As I sprayed, the can got freezing cold and actually froze the paint in a couple of areas. It didn't seem to damage the paint or the canvas at all but I certainly didn't expect that to happen! So in the future I'll know... short bursts of canned air ONLY!
