Re: Chinese lanterns

You have a great illustrative style which transfer well over to painting. I like your use of color. It can be hard to get a teal body to look warm and pleasing, and you have succeeded.

Re: Chinese lanterns

I really like this. It just holds my attention. How did you texture the canvas?

AndreZA, actually there is no texture on that canvas. I just used the paint quite thickly in places and it built up a texture.

Usually i texture my canvas using modelling paste then add a final coat of gesso.
