Day 10 - Marsh Solitude 2

"Marsh Solitude 2", 30"X11"
acrylic on paper
I know this is an odd size for me, but I had all day, and I experimented!  This one is a half sheet of watercolor paper torn lengthwise, so it is 30" tall and 11" wide!  I started by gessoing the entire sheet last night, so it could dry all night.  Then I tore it in half and tried to figure out how I was going to paint on it.  Ended up just laying it flat.  The textured gesso really grabbed the paint, so there is quite a bit on there!  I hung it up to dry overnight, and I'll look at it in the morning to try to figure out how to mount it.  Still haven't decided that part yet!
