THREE TECHNIQUES IN AN EXPERIMENTAL PAINTING
It's not that I think the final product is so terrific. As you've likely heard before, it's the process!
First, I just played around with warm colors of acrylic paint on canvas, creating non-objective shapes.
|This is only Step 1!|
Next, I grabbed a Pilot metallic marker in gold. I'm not one to go for glitter or glitz, normally, but I did like the shine with my color scheme. I drew lines and scribbled here and there. Not done yet, though.
|Step 2, a gold metallic marker.|
But wait, there's more! To add more interest, I pulled the tines of a fork through the dark brown in six or seven places.
|End result...and the tar gel added a slightly raised texture.|
Do try scribbling with a shiny metallic marker, or squeezing a tar gel mixture, or combing through with a fork...great techniques!
