When I had completed the mixed media piece from yesterday’s post I was keen to try the same idea but with different techniques. I liked the composition so transferred it to a large canvas. I added gesso to certain parts of the canvas-when layers of colour were added ,the surface texture added interest.
A different colour palette and loss of the fine pencil and pen lines brought about a completely different outcome. From this I started adding yet more texture and materials from sand to textiles to some of my pieces which I feel gives another dimension to my work.It’s just great to change direction now and again….at the moment I’m back working on watercolour paper….
