"Street Reflections #1 and #2" Contemporary Landscape and Figurative Oil Paintings by Arizona Artist Mary Opat

12"x12" Oil on Paper "Street Reflections #1
These are the first of a series of four subtractive paintings.  The process
involved prepping a special paper with modeling paste and then painting
a layer of cadmium yellow deep and letting it dry.  A layer of
burnt umber was applied to cover completely and then wiped away
in some places revealing the gold color underneath.  The white lights and
green/red reflections were added last.
