website. The good news is that I will interview her in late August.
Most of Christie's work is done on a very dark or black gessoed canvas which sets the stage for a very beautiful, moody feel. I tried the black gesso, but now I have reverted back to a lighter underpainting. I must say I love this new medium. First, it replaces the toxic Liquin I have been using for a long time and second the wax helps me work up a painting faster.
This painting is one I painted while working with Christie and just finished yesterday. Lately I have had a fascination with rivers, especially from an aerial perspective.
