You can see that the painting is a large work which was done with a lot of spontaneous gestural movements done over and over to create this very layered painting. In addition many of the colors were created by Nestor by mixing mediums to make them exactly like he envisioned them…but also making the work even more complicated to reproduce.
Keep in mind that it is impossible to copy an abstract work such as this one (even for the artist who created it) but Nestor is a master of his medium as you will see in the sequence below.
The first step was to gather the needed materials: canvas, gesso, and the acrylic paint used for this palette. The first order of business was to hand apply the gesso to the canvas. This process was done 3 times allowing the gesso to dry each time resulting in a triple layered canvas.
