Beginning the Commissioned Painting

Now that the final image had been determined I needed to start the commissioned painting. As a smooth surface was required I used three 5' x 10' 3/4 panels of plywood linked together to use as a painting platform on the studio floor.

A roll of 10 foot canvas was next laid out to give added evenness and consistency to the surface. This would not be the painted surface.

Following this a layer of polyethylene was placed over the canvas then a second layer of canvas which would be the painting support.

I began the painting by putting a preliminary colour on the canvas.

Then the first layer of coloured gel was placed on the painting using a large trowel. This required a week to dry and set before continuing.

Paintings are really very good. I have got some idea about Calgary painting. I want more information and pictures about this painting.
