Top ~third is done, so I'll need at least 4 more days to finish it.

I want all my brush strokes to be super visible, so I am using a synthetic bristle brush and mix impasto medium into the paint.

Last and most fun part is covering all the circles with oil paint. I start in the top left edge with all the violets and purples.

#mutualaid @mutualaid I've been on sick leave for more than a year due to #fibromyalgia. Social Security pays me €242,20/month, but that's never enough for my monthly appointment, and meds for the fibro, ibs and asthma. Fortunately, the wife is working, but we've been late on rent a few times bc money is always short and we also need to eat. If you can help me, I'll be very thankful ❤️


#boosts are appreciated ❤️

I am painting the space between the circles with a thinned-down mix of Graphite Grey and Mars Black (also called Iron Oxide Black). Mars Black is a heavily granulating pigment and creates a very interesting texture.

Next up is the base color layer. For this I am using my trusted acrylic primary colors. They mix cleanly and allow me to get every color I want.

First I am priming the canvas with a mix of Gesso and texture paste, and I am using palette knives and old brushes for this because I don't want the surface to be smooth at all.
