Today I'm sharing two canvases! I made both of them while I was at Ronda's. They're both on wooden canvases, a new favorite of mine. Ronda's father-in-law makes them for her, but you can buy them online as well. I like the wood canvases because you can easily collage on them (there's no give, as with a traditional stretched canvas). I also found the edges easier to finish than a traditional canvas.
I used the Neocolor II watersoluble crayons to create the face. They've always been a favorite of mine, but lately I've discovered just how much you can do with them and I'm loving it! (I will be teaching a Neocolor II class in October.)
This next canvas was made with a mixture of collage, stamping, spray paint, and acrylic paint.
Not that I'm comparing myself to Picasso in any way shape or form, but I think this canvas has a Picasso-African-Mask-Period feeling to it.
I enjoy switching between mediums as much as possible. It keeps things fresh for me. How about you? Do you switch things up or pretty much stick with the same materials?
Thanks for stopping by!
