Yet more doodling
Yet another little painting on that old gesso panel. Again - it is merely a bit of invention. It isn't for anything. I am just trying to see what the possibilities are with this way of working.
One thing that I have learnt is that this painting is much more luminous if the white of the gesso is shining through a relatively thin layer of paint. Expensive acrylic paints (I'm using Golden here) are more transparent than cheap ones and richer in colour - and it shows in the hat in this picture.
