I began this new painting by covering the whole canvas with a pale green. After it dried, I used a palette knife to apply broad strokes of titanium white and parchment, blending them together. Then I added turquoise green, again using the palette knife.
There seemed to be too much green and not enough white, so I used the knife to add more white, covering up a lot of the green and blending with it in places. Very little of the parchment showed through at this point.
In my last step, I drew accent lines with Prussian blue. Then I took a small paint brush and brushed over these lines, softening and widening them. At that point I decided to stop and try again tomorrow.
