I had a friend over for a little crafty arty session. I was determined to do something that I had been turning over and over in my head for a while.
This canvas is done using a subtractive technique. I laid the colours down in patches on the background and painted over it in the negative space. I don't think I chose the right shape for my first attempt at this technique. I may try something easier next time.
Some of my thicker paints are getting old and can be used to add texture as well as colour. I spread some of it through a stencil using a palette knife and the result shows all over the place. I love what it did!
I will definitely be making more canvases. I have a slightly caved in one that I will be experimenting on, using fabrics and beads to embellish my mixed media backgrounds and textures. Hooray!
