Just for the fun of it, I felt like making a textures piece. So I smothered an old canvas with white gesso and scraped it with a plastic fork. It takes ages to dry, but I luuurve the effect you get, all sort of wood grainy :D
Then I chose a colour combi and used a very wet brush to slop it on...
as soon as it dried the wood nymph showed herself :D
I dripped alcohol inks, and highlighted the figure...
before coating with clear gesso.
Next I used brown and white Stabilo pencil to draw her out...
I thought the ink splats looked like lichen, so I outlined each one with black Eyeball fine liner, and added 3 rub on moths(cos moths like sitting on tree bark)
The frame is reclaimed from an old tv cabinet I trashed. The panel effects on the doors and draws turned out to be plastic, and just popped off to make fabulous ornate frames :D
The moths have lots of details on them ,but the glare from the sun made them look white :S
I was going to save this for Paint Party Friday,but I already have something new for that :D XXX
