Cohen’s Last Song, Oil on Canvas




I watched a demonstration on the de Kooning technique of painting on YouTube. It was fascinating. Inspired, the next week I chose my (2) oil colors, a large blank canvas, large brushes and mixed the 2 colors in separate bowls adding in different mediums for a syrupy, runny mixture. The way the paint slipped over the surface of the canvas and over the oil paint was beautiful. The neutral gray at the end added a cohesiveness. This painting is inspired by Leonard Cohen’s song – “You Want It Darker.”

Saturday, Oct. 9th at 1:00 pm, Rebecca will demonstrate this technique during the Studio ArTour.
