It's not often I get this excited by a piece I create. This is my follow up from yesterday's 21 Secrets post. I was thinking I needed more texture and sure enough that's what Dina had us do in the 2nd video. So I added what Dina called "reverse stenciling" - rubbing away some paint through a stencil and then stenciled back in with some deep phthalo blue acrylic paint. Added some words to the flowers and leaves (I'm usually reluctant to do this but I love how it turned out). Added some old book text - slapped and pounced white gesso and color - Golden fluid burnt orange, crimson, and some others. It was a coloring frenzy! My husband wants me to frame and hang this. The colors look great in our living room. The texture (which is very hard to photograph) is really amazing. I would love to hear from all you artists out there! Leave a comment if you can. Have a blessed and creative day!
