Munter Homage_Underpainting:

Homage to Gabriele Munter: Underpainting, 4' x 6', Oil

I have been working up an underpainting for my Munter homage. I started out with a pastel underground on oil primed canvas referencing one of her painting compositions, and have now been layering expressionistic color to her enlarged partial portrait.

I will continue to work on this with predominantly white paint layers, from the technique explored last semester with my intuitive paintings. Pousette-Dart in the exhibition at the Phillips did have some paintings that at the outset were abstract but that the deeper and longer you looked were subjective in nature.

Painting and contemplation go hand in hand with this process.
