|Detail from finished "Picnic table" or "this is who we are, this is what we know, laughing at the picnic table"|
Started with swipes of black and then aerosol marking off the basic outline of the figures.
|More aerosol and then applied black acrylic to give texture and harder structure.|
|Making things a bit more formal.|
|Reference photo is taped up on the right of the canvas - an old photo of my friend Carey Carevitch (from Gypsy Thread http://gypsythread.blogspot.com/2013/01/happy-2013-lets-have-giveaway.html) and her brother.|
|Adding color and text: "This is who were are, this is what we know, laughing at the picnic table"|
Hmmmm....thinking about this for a bit...
|Adding texture and design to the canvas' edges and hoping to see the painting in a whole new direction.|
|Edges finished with stencil work and coated with a mixture of Gamblin Paint Co's Neo Megilp and translucent earth red |
