While the world bakes outside I have dedicated this weekend to painting. Another one of my passions is this textured mixed media canvases. The motto is if I can glue it to a canvas, it fair game 🙂
Here are some of my past projects….
Some bigger canvases took months to complete…
An old canvas I was never happy with and sat in the closet for months…So I took a picture of it and got a sharpie…
chicken wire layer
Then I applied more textures, washers; a belt covered in plastic gems and green glass marble bricks…..
Tissue paper to give a “skin” over the textures 🙂
Gesso-ed white (tissue paper and glue bleeds- took so many colors of white!)
The final result has black behind the “holes” to make it all pop. Sadly dont have a picture of that yet.
The latest completed piece:
I am now beginning a pair piece for the one above so I will do my best to take pictures throughout the process!
Have a great Saturday everyone!
