This little canvas board came from the Mystery Build Kit I received last year and that I didn’t use in my project. It’s the perfect size for daily art!
I was going to collage some silk thread onto the painting to make the pink/magenta horizontal lines coming out, but I remembered how the thread (and fabric) tends to darken a lot when I collage with them. So, I just used paint to mimic the shape of what I hoped the thread would do.
I took some photos of some lovely soap bubbles in a pot in the kitchen sink. I figured I would zoom in and crop one of the photos on the computer and post the raw image. But…once I selected the photo I liked, I decided to try a few software filters to see if one enhanced it or ruined it. The glowing edges filter was the winner. And here is the result.
I bought some new paint at my local art store today, so I had to try them out (including brilliant yellow green, turner’s yellow, transparent raw sienna, and two others I didn’t use in this piece). Then I added more that I already had on hand (brilliant blue, brilliant purple, and cadmium red deep, and possibly alizarin crimson).
I didn’t have much time to spend on this scraped, pressed, textured renovated painting today. It’s a dreary day for picture-taking, and the textured parts are difficult to see. Hoping for more art time tomorrow!
No more silk on hand (at least in pre-cut sizes), but I have had so much fun painting on fabric (using acrylic, not fabric paint) that I scraped some acrylic on this piece of nylonish-polyesterish-something-or-otherish purple for today’s daily.
Also along the river trail were lots of cattails that were molting (incorrect technical term)—sloughing off their seed fuzz. I don’t remember ever seeing this up close before. I have another photo of a whole party of cattails together that I might post later (tomorrow?), but I like the close up for today.
