I created this painting for my second book Surface Treatment Workshop. It involves layering many different techniques. I recently finished the artwork for my third book and I used a lot of panels that had backgrounds that were already painted from teaching and demos. It reinforces my appreciation for all the layers that go into my work. I think this is what makes a painting interesting. Sometimes you may only see a tiny portion of what came before, but it adds tremendously to the depth and history of the work.
