Textured Surfaces


How many times can you over paint a painting :0))) - I did this as part of my 'homework' for my City & Guilds but have stripped it back and repainted it, stripped it back again and again and I still cant stop. I like the overall layout but just can't seem to get the top panel painted the way I picture it in my mind........ This is a plywood box panel measuring 24"x20" , covered in molding paste and then painted with various acrylics and oil sticks. Its a work in progress as yet. I'm sure you will see it resurface again soon with some additions to it. TFL..

Textile surfaces are swimming in my mind at the moment so maybe some will gather momentum over the next week or so as I have a few workshops lined up and I will be inspired again. Watch this space..

This is sublime- I do understand when you say it is not like your vision of how it should be, but it is really gorgeous anyway. The balance of the tones is perfect, and the texture is so great. I love it!

I love this, how it is now. When you enlarge the photo, wow the depth of the texture just blows you away. Very cool stuff.
