This painting began in 2019, when I worked on the background texture, by adding a map that I had hand-cut. I cut out all of the spaces between the roads, which gave it a very lacy look. I also added a texturing of marble dust on top of that. I added a bit of colour, and then I put it away for 2 years!
I am not sure why it sat that long, maybe I got busy with other things. When I took it out again, while I loved the colours I used in it, I felt like it needed a bit of light. This is what you can see me doing in the video. This painting now hangs on my wall, as it waits for me to title it and frame it. I hope it doesn't take another 2 years.
