Homage to Kollwitz: Stages of Painting

This evening I began my first layer as an underground for my Homage to Kollwitz. There is nothing like dripping a white oil ground onto a 6 foot canvas after a day of teaching. The thunder and lighting set a an ambiance for some visceral expression and movement. I am planning layers of underground with oil color and pastel, before the actual layered oil painting with collage elements will begin.

I am really attempting to document the stages of my paintings this semester, although I may not blog each stage specifically.

Here also is a link to an audio lecture at MOMA by Kathe Kollwitz and Frida Kahlo of the Guerilla Girls:
