Botto Italian Genoa Seascape

The process takes us from initial ink drawing to painting on wall, it took about 8 days, with the final painting time being about 6 hours. I painted the block in directly on the wall using a transparency of my ink drawing on the projector. Slowly began building up tone and definition with painterly line, mark making, and dry brushing. The final step was an overall oil glaze and a rag pull-out, removing the glaze layer with a rag to create the brightest tones in the picture. This mural was completed in late September. More from this location very soon.
