This will be a small post to match the small art, so I thought I’d share some fun mini canvases I created.
First, let me say that I am, by no means, a good drawer and I’ve accepted that. However, I was doodling around on some newsprint paper that was used to protect a fragile something I purchased and came up with some of these fun graffiti/cartoon-like faces. I only drew half a face on the edge of the paper and tore around it. I used gel medium to glue them down over a painted and stamped background. I loved the way the thin paper just melted onto the canvas using the gel. Tissue paper is awesome using this technique. I then painted a bit more over and around the images and here are the results. Seriously, these faces were a result of just goofing around with my black pen.
The size of the canvases are 3 1/2″” x 2 1/2″. Very fun to play with. I got them from Dick Blick; see them here.
Just start with smearing some paint on a background, let it dry, add another layer, then stamp around it.. no rules… just fun play.
Give it a try.. go on. I’ll wait here.
Thanks for stopping by.
