Workshop Demonstration
I formed the underbrush in this workshop project by scraping into layers of warm glazes  with a palette knife. I began with a detailed drawing before loosening the edges with a variety of green washes that remind me of yarns dyed with a chrome mordant. The fascination with this low country Dwarf Palmetto (Sabal Minor) is how it hides the lights behind the verdant green blades, then surprises us by releasing them sporadically from the dark recesses. I watched the green hues of light and shade weave patterns back and forth - finding harmony in the haphazard life of the fronds.
