Sketch week - Karen

A different approach to the sketch today with Karen who altered a canvas using Tando Creative cogs and PaperArtsy paints

Using PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in Guacamole and Cheesecake, I covered my rectangular canvas and dried with a heat tool. (Always dry between layers to stop the paints 'muddying') Then, using my finger I smeared on PaperArtsy Ice Blue and Claret. Using Andy Skinners Mask (Burning Rubber) and more Claret I stencilled along the bottom before adding Gesso with my brayer to 'dull' it all down a little. Going back to the mask I stencilled in Ice Blue down one side. I have used Tando Creative Heart Cogs and painted them up in the same colours, using a stipple brush around the edges. For the children I have stencilled through Andy Skinners Mask (6x6 Children) using a mix of Claret and Guacamole onto white card, then cut them out. I tore a dictionary definition of children out and coloured it before glueing in place behind the children.
