Work in progress: Dislocation

Dislocation, painting in progress by M.K. Hajdin

I haven’t posted much lately because I’ve been busy working on a painting.
On this painting I’ve begun on the first layer which is mostly dead-color in acrylic and acrylic gesso. When I have the values about right I’ll add a layer of transparent gesso, which adds a lot of texture that will keep the top layer stable, and then finish with oil color on top.

Because acrylic dries so fast, this method enables me to work up the bottom layers much more quickly and tweak them more without ruining the overall painting.
