Week 21 – Algae & Tadpoles

I did this composition of algae (microscopic) and tadpoles (not microscopic) over an old oil painting that I never liked. I was listening to the radio as I worked on it and heard that it was "America Recycles" day (or maybe recycle week?), so that was fitting that I was reusing a canvas.
It was fun to work in thick, straight oil paint, and to think more about the color and the brush strokes than the rendering of the subject matter.
