This week I've been working on a few textured background canvases... in preparation for a demo I'm doing this coming Sunday for our art group. (Figured I should have some examples of what I'm showing!)
I started by crinkling up a dictionary page, smoothing it out, and then adhering it to a 4 x 4 inch canvas board with matte medium, scrunching up the page to leave large wrinkles.
After it dried a bit, I added acrylic paint layers - deliberately letting the text from the background show through.
Then painted the background mountain, which still needs a bit of work...
And added some webbed ribbon to start the foreground texture.
This is where I am as of right now. More to come on this soon!
