"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.41"
Mixed media on 12" x 12" wrapped canvas
This porch I did a bit differently. I usually lightly underpaint my canvases with an acrylic paint and then paint over with oil. This painting, I started with staining the canvas in places with an almost solid coat of watercolor paints. Then, I painted with oils. I found it rather fun to experiment with using watercolor and oil paints together. Water and oil don't usually go together well but I think this turned out pretty well. This porch is one of the first of many more to come from "the Avenues" part of Salt Lake. There are a great deal of beautiful porches in that area. I loved the purple and green of this porch.
