To paraphrase Dickens, "this is a tale of two canvases..."
All year I've been taking Donna Downey's CANVAS CREATE classes. It's a different canvas and technique each month. I've really enjoyed getting out of my rut and trying new things.
The photo below is where I started.
May canvas was done on a black canvas. And I tried twice to get the technique to work for me, but never liked the results. After the third try, I decided to give up and used another technique of Donna's to use up the paint in the palette cups. (There's a video on her blog, but I can't find it...)
When I finished this version my thought was....'THIS LOOKS LIKE A FOREST FIRE."
Then the Waldo Canyon fire had me evacuating...UGH!
I started with modeling paste. (Have I told you that I'm addicted to modeling paste now???)
"Everything Happens for a Reason".
Yes. I believe that!
