View Full Version : Paint on Canvas WIP

Hi Everyone :wave:
Thought i would do something just for fun. Acrylic on canvas 16x20, used a sponge and then finding shapes (like looking into the clouds) before i start glazing. I have no idea where this is going :D bc when i did this before the glazes changed all the colours but that's ok bc i really liked how the first one turned out. The butterfly lady & glazings technique i learned last year from dSam is the inspiration. C&C welcome!

Love what you have going on in this painting. Sam's class was a good one wasn't it. Miss seeing him around here too.

So much depth in there, and a lot to feed the imagination.

Thanks for your comments!

idcrisis55 - yes loved learning his technique, i didn't know he wasn't here any longer. Will miss him too. :(

Paulafv, - organic :D interersting observation

Jackie339, - is a "shale stone" like marble, that is kind of the idea i have going here, except i'm not sure marble would have these colours.

LavenderFrost, - glad you can see the depth already, hope to have more and more - the glazes help w/that so much. Love finding those hidden designs in there, great for my imagination :lol:

Glad you like it so far :heart: will post again in a day or so.

Kenya, Sam may still be around but hasn't posted in awhile. One these days, hopefully, we will see another post by him. :)

Hi Everyone,

Here is an update. C&C welcome. Not sure if the colors are working together or clashing ? Still want to add more glazing for depths.


Thanks for looking!

:lol: Kenya. Was having to come up with a user name and nothing came to mind. It felt like an identity crisis, so that became the user name. :D

I think your colors are very cohesive and along with the textures offer lots of interest. I'm lurking to see your next update. :D
