Getting Back to Canvas Painting Left in Midstream

By Abstractartbylt @artbylt

Life interrupted my progress on this large canvas painting, but today I began to work on it again.  After taking a break from an unfinished painting, I will often view it differently and find a new vision for it.  Here's the canvas before I started reworking it:

   Canvas #117, 60" x 40" acrylic on canvas.

First I painted lemony yellow, pale peach and pale blue blocks of color in an overall manner, covering up some of the old colors.  Then I added spots of medium brown.  Finally, I began to block out the "background" with unbleached titanium.  I'll finish that process next time.
