|CHANEL WITH AN ATTITUDE|
30x40 Mixed Media on Canvas
Welcome to 2012! One of the things I have vowed to do this year is to post more regularly on this site!
I also plan on having a story for each painting, meaning I will keep a log of the process I am using, as it changes from painting to painting.
I know I put two canvases together with gesso and let them set up for a couple of hours and then pulled them apart. I have also started using a blow torch between layers to bring a hidden layer out. I have also experimented with using gunpowder on canvas, I had previously used it to burn paper for collage because it makes a very nice lacelike effect. I found it you spritz the canvas lightly, you can put the gunpowder on top of it and it won't burn through the canvas. Yes, I think my "day" job has gotten pretty stressful, because I have enjoyed experimenting this year.
I promise you will see me around more in 2012!!!!!
