More play with paint and paper. This is not a finished piece, and I still am not sure what I will use these for. But the point is I am painting, experimenting. Being creative. Oh and I should add that these images are photos, not scans. The colors and lighting are off a bit, sorry about that.
I signed up for, and received two free samples of Liquitex Heavy Body acrylic paint. This is part of the Liquitex cadmium free challenge. (You can see more on YouTube as well.) I was hoping for yellow. Because, well, you know what I like to paint with yellow. But freebie beggars can’t be choosers. Two .74 oz. tubes of cad red arrived.
They have been sitting on my desk for about two weeks. I am not much of a red user. Except to make other colors. I know, I know, my favorite Shiraz is a red. But it is so much more than red. 😉
So what to do with free red paint. Hmm. Yeah, Christmas. But I never feel like painting Christmas, until about the following February. So my thought was to use it as an accent, and “tone” it down with other colors. Yesterday, I used only white and red. Today I added Fuchsia.
To start, a layer of red, applied with the brayer.
Next was about five layers of different stamps and different colors. I was adding them so quickly, I forgot to take photos.
I should have stopped there. But it was a little messy in that bottom left corner.
There you go Sheila. Now you have really mucked it up. Only one thing to do.
And here we are. Stage one done.
There is a lot of wonderful texture going on from all the unseen layers.
Time to sit down to Season 2 of the Crown!
