anatomy and structure and layer of a painting #1

I am going to document a few paintings all the way through the process. I really like to see the layers and history. This painting is going surprisingly fluid so I am going to try this on a few pieces. This is a fun illustration of how I build a picture. This painting is based entirely on a system derived from the phrase "it's o.k." being translated into Morse Code and then being structured out according to the 6 dots and 6 dashes in that phrase.
