Playing with Images
Recently another artist posted photos of a work in progress, and I was enamored with the technique that he was using. He starts with a piece of lightweight landscape cloth, uses a palette knife to coat it with molding paste, paints it, and then runs it through his printer and seals it. I loved the combination of an abstract painted background with a photo superimposed on the surface.
Since this is not the season for the local shops to sell landscape fabric, he generously sent me a yard of it to play with. The photos above are two that I took in our gardens, and I think they will be perfect for this technique. Stay tuned as I try it out!
