"What I Paint With"

6"x6", oil on gesso board


I did this painting for this week's DPW challenge.
I painted over the old painting, mostly Red and Green. The handle of the knife, the shadow of the paint tube, the bright Red and dark Green areas are undisturbed from the old painting.
It has turned out to be a fun process of the making a painting.
The choice of the Green and Red handle brushes was made to work with Red and Green of the old painting. The new color added were Blue and White, which are the color of the paint tube.

What a beautiful way to recycle a painting! I might have to jump on the band wagon.

Very strong! I love how you let the old painting influence this one, all the thick paint and stray marks . . . exciting!

Your painting has a lot of personality. Your colors and composition are wonderful and I like that you paint over old paintings! I'll have to give it a try!
