"Clinging to What is Here"

Oil and Graphite on Wood

I am really happy with how this piece turned out. It was a bit of an experiment. I got these panels, and couldn't bear to gesso over them, so I did the drawing and then went over that with a clear varnish. Then I just painted right over the top of it. I loved that I was able to use white to highlight the arms, and it stands out so well over the golden tone of the wood.
