“Dawn” ⓒ 2011 Michaela Harlow – (16″ x 16″ – Oil and Oil Bar on Panel)
Another piece with a long history. Here’s one I have been reworking for a few days, and now finished. It began quite a long time ago: 2006 (originally title ‘Rosy Fingered Dawn’). The underpainting includes sections of heavy impasto and translucent stain. There are glazed sections, scraped sections, rubbed spots, brush work and even drawing in oil bar. It’s a heavy piece with a light presence and one with which I am finally quite pleased.
