This was gel medium (about an 8" square) on foam board. Good texture...that's a piece of string on the top left.
Then I mixed some acrylic paint with water and painted the other side of the foam board (after I used gel medium for marking, which I let dry first!).
So that was fun! So next was Peggy 'playing'!!!
But Peggy really got into it! And she didn't start out small...nope, her piece is 16" x 20" (at least). She started off playing with gesso and gel medium. I haven't worked with gesso much so I didn't think you would get the same texture or results needed but it worked!
|Left side is gesso - right is gel medium|
Peggy decided to use the gesso on canvas and this was her start using cheesecloth, circles, etc. Pretty interesting, right!
And then came the paint!
Peggy decided the edges were too sharp so she did more blending and this is the final piece! I think she did a great job!!!!
Outreach East. We like to donate clothes, household items to this organization as they don't sell to folks who need..they give them away. So I will pick up flowers tomorrow and feel like part of the $$'s will go to a good organization! Then to weed the front yard...then back to cleaning the inside and continue to do some purging. Makes a gal feel good!
