For the past while I have been trying to figure out a good way to do some really cool pieces using lots of texture. I have tried many times and in my eyes, not always succeeded...until now.
I just finished this piece a week and a bit ago and I feel that I finally hit the nail on the head with it!
The textured pieces have been really fun for me to play with and I look forward to doing some really large sized ones in the near future.
The really cool thing I like about these pieces is that they all came about from me spreading waste paint while I am working on other pieces onto a spare canvas. i always felt bad about wasting an excess paint I mixed and I try to be as green as possible when I paint. By recycling my paint I get to save the planet a little bit more and create some cool texture on my canvases at the same time. And I dont have to spend a whack load of money on special texture compounds from the paint manufacturers!! Bonus!!
This piece is called "Sunrise on a new idea" and I love it!. Really stoked to do some more pieces like it.
