hello everyone!!! do you know what today is!!!
IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!!! and as well my turn to post over at Art Anthology and i thought what better to create for such a day then a piece featuring my parents
you see pictures are very rare of my mom and even more rare is a photo of the two of them together. i have this photo, which is a photocopy of a copy of the original.. i think that is right… so it was a one shot deal to do something special with it… so let’s see the process
this is a somewhat heavy picture post as you will see that my background turns out nothing like it started out as!!!
first i started off using a canvas that i have had started some time ago which i had covered with colorations to which i added some texture paste in the corners
i then needed to decide what pieces i wanted to add to the canvas. i want to start using what i have… and i mean that this time..so grabbed some odds and ends and started building components.i then decided that the canvas was too bright and i wasn’t a fan of the lines i had created a long time ago in the gesso….so thought i would layer a piece of tissue paper over the top to see if that would help
so this wasn’t too bad… i figured i just needed to add a bit of colour to the bar pieces to start everything blending together
and here now are a couple pictures of my final piece
as always, thanks for stopping by and if you want a closer look you can always just click the picture!!
