Sea painting – techniques

posted in: painting techniques | 0

I did a couple of quick paintings depicting the sea last week. I started by priming the canvases with gesso which I applied with a palette knife, then spattered more on top to create a textures surface to start painting on. Painting techniques included scraping paint across the canvas with a palette knife then flicking and splattering more paint on top.

Experiments with mixed media

image transfer experimentThese images were created using matte gel as an image transfer medium. When gel was tacky, the images from magazines were laid face down on the gel surface. Once completely dry, the paper was removed by wetting it and gently peeling it away, leaving the reverse of the printed image.
