It’s my turn to share a tutorial for the Donna Downey Artist Gang, and this month I have made a mixed media canvas. This is quite different to my usual art style, I am mostly an art journaler, but I quite enjoyed myself.
I started by collaging the base with ephemera and then lay down the stencil, I wanted to use it in reverse. And then I covered the whole thing with gesso and filled in the stencil outline with modelling paste to create a full image of a naked lady.
Once the shape was to the thickness I was happy with I started using acrylic glaze to add a grunginess to the canvas.
Anyway, I won’t go into any more detail, you can watch me make the whole thing at the Donna Downey Artist Gang YouTube account.
