Crystal Springs Experiment, 8x10 inches, pastel, available.

I experimented with a new substrate for this painting... It is a pumice gesso painted onto masonite. The texture is far to rough to take a definitive line, hence the interesting foggy look of the painting. The rough texture of the substrate helps the warm undertone to shine through. I am undecided about the effect. I am planning on trying a few more, maybe thinning the gesso so that it does not have such a strong texture.
