ok so this is just totally playing around. first i selected a size 9×12 canvas board , and added a few things here and there with gel meduim. let that dry…..
then i slathered on some ochre and white paints and painted them on at the same time. just dabbed a small amount of both directly to the canvas and blended them together. let that dry a bit….
then get some punchinella or whatever you like, to make patterns with stamping ink all over the canvas. of course i kinda didnt like this ….
then i took an ink pad refill and drew little squiggles all over the canvas…. and i really didnt like it. blech….
blech , ugh…
so i put more ochre and white and not only used a brush to slather it on but a napkin to make it a little interesting…. and because i put a little too much (the access that i wiped off went in a journal but i’m sure you have done that before)
so that was better and i started coloring…. and coloring…..
i love THESE CRAYONS….. but i’ve said that many times before….
then i took a scanned antique photo i have of a German Body Builider (i think) which i enlarged to 200% … he will be the focus of our little collage….
so i dont know if you knew this or not but micron pens are pretty awsome… they can draw and write over your water colors crayons and acrylics pretty nicely! so i doodled…..
then i doodled some more with this presto white out pen… it was fun.
la la la….
oh i forgot to say i printed off my body builder onto photo paper, and so you can do a lot with that as far as filling him in with color (no color printer) i used my ink pad to add color directly to him…..
here he is all done … with many layers. 🙂
and now you can make your own if you like….
