Today I wanted to get my hand dirty on a project I am working on that has a number of steps to it. I will post more as I complete it, but here are a few snippets!
First, I took a blank canvas and stenciled a flower pattern with gesso. The gesso will act as a resist to color when it is applied.
Secondly, I added some color with my Stabilo water soluble Woody's. I envisioned a fower garden and just randomly colored spots on the canvas.
You can see in this little subsection how the gesso flower pattern shines through.
The artists tools...
Then I took a wet paintbrush and began to blend the water soluble colors together to make a pretty flower palette.
I have an idea of what this will eventually turn into...it will be fun to see if what I start out to create ends up being anything like the finished product!!!
