I have two 20" square canvases that I intended to make coordinating abstract paintings to go in my new upgraded bathroom later this month! So, I put lots of modeling past texture on them, painting an underpainting, then covered that up mostly with creamy white/titan buff paint. Then, I started using a makeup sponge to add some green paint on the texture, and look what happened! It turned into a landscape! NOT what I had in mind! I'm still going to play with it and see what I can do - there's still a long way to go to finish.
But, I really shouldn't be surprised. When I painted a lot of watercolor paintings, most of them were landscapes. I seem to gravitate to them. But, the second canvas just doesn't have the same "feel" - so maybe it will actually be an abstract.
Here is a closeup of some of all that yummy texture! Love it!
