working my art journal technique onto canvas when i grabbed a used canvas that i was not happy with hanging out on a shelf in my studio.
i had painted it originally and apparently, tried to repaint this poor little canvas before being inspired to try this technique on canvas. third time may just be the charm!
i layered up a little collage paper and worked my paint. i had recently taught this class called- art journaling statements using fashion magazines for art journals; but, the technique seems to work well on canvas.
i love the above corner for sure.....the mix of colors, peeled layers and the ink pen marks.
the yellow green sides are original to the canvas from the first painting- at this point not sure i wanted to repaint....still contemplating this.
this was the first of four paintings that day. started small on this 4" x 4" canvas and worked my way up to a 12" x 36".
are you on instagram? i made a few short videos for my instagram account if you want to see more.
this top one would be obstinate and not play well with others. she would walk to her own beat and not follow the pack. she would be interesting for sure though; with little pops of color and a used tea-bag on her body. she would draw you in and make you look and you will like her anyway.
this one is more reasonable, but still walks her own way with her neutral polka dots. she would be interesting with re-purposed clothing scraps and a partial clothing tag. she will always be confidently quiet and wear her crown.
