I've been prepping backgrounds from class. It's not something that comes naturally for me. But it's something I would like to grow more in. I always seem to forget how great it is.
So I had a few prepped canvases like this and I've been dying to work on them. I'm loving how they give such a different element to your work. Working on a painted surface is completely different than working on a clean canvas. Well, at least I find that and sometimes I find it harder but always a gorgeous outcome and one I'm always happy with. I find I have to work with much thicker paint which is most delicious.
Working with scratching and stencils. And I'm loving it. I can't wait to play on more textured and prepped backgrounds.
As for this girl, I really love her.
These new pieces are going towards a body of works for an auction later in the year.
Happy painting, Love Me.
