Changing Light Idaho - NFS

"Changing Light Idaho", 14" x 18", On on Panel
One of the methods that Ovanes uses on his own paintings and recommends to students is scraping areas that are not working and re-doing them This painting was one I generously scraped in order to experiment with the idea. Sometimes scraping can leave a base of beautiful modulated color on which to re-paint. I never showed him this version of the painting but the one thing I like about it is the feeling of the light.
