so I started the two paintings today and blocked them in. I used blue black and flack white on plywood. My teacher, Ralph, told me he's never seen anyone use this type of plywood for painting before so he and I are both intrigued with what the results will be. I have some idea. Theoretically, the texture should peak through. But with some thick passages, the texture will be mixed with painted textures and be more integrated. Right now the texture is too distracting. But, this is sophomore year. A year for experimentation. But this texture is intriguing.
