Burmese Captain. The Painterly Process Continues.

I have started to work on a long process of glazing the already existing underpainting. Every wash of colour was subsequently cleaned of with a sponge and cloth. The objective was to make the painting more moody and dramatic. This technique has also allowed me to reveal individual areas of the glaze while allowing some of the original colour to get through the layers.

This painstaking process has already taken its toll on integrity of the surface. The chips and cracks of the underage have become more and more apparent. When the work is completely dry, I intend to reinstate the machine intervention process.

I plan to video record a long and hot machine cycle. Whatever is remaining after will constitute the beginning of the next stage of the painting process.
