Pipe dream - step IV... back to wiping out paint!

With this 4th pass, I'm back to applying and wiping out paint in rapid sequences to obtain additional textural effects with paint. The bare canvas fibers (no primer) help in that respect...

It's a method that I've used before with raw cotton canvas which has a tighter knit than the raw cotton/linen. With the latter, I'm satisfied with transparent mid tones because of the beautiful gray undertone provided by the canvas. Each support has it's own temperament... and I have to adjust.
