Painting

"Look, it's my misery that I have to paint this kind of painting, it's your misery that you have to love it, and the price of the misery is thirteen hundred and fifty dollars."
~ Mark Rothko

The Technique: black acrylic paint is used to 'draw' the subject, the same way as one would sketch with India ink. Then oil paint is thinned down and applied as a stain, permitting the acrylic drawing and the bright whiteness of the primed canvas to show through clearly underneath.
