I wanted the background ( all painted) to almost be misty with
only the poppy in the front, sort of a surreal look :-)
I stamped on acetate and cut out the poppy leaving an edge
so the poppy looks slightly wicked at the sides.
Before I added the colours I used white to start with as
the red I have is translucent so it will pop more on white.
The background started with tissue paper which I stamped
randomly and then used modpodge to stick it to the canvas. I wanted
lots of texture so all the ripples are there on purpose :-)
The background was painted with Fresco paint, then I used
a brayer with white over the top to highlight the ripples and
give a muted feeling so the poppy would pop out. I then
used the mask I made and painted it white before adding the colour
through the mask.
Some closer pics :-)
Right I'm off, hope your all having a fantastic day. It's been raining here but it is really muggy, guess it's better then cold and windy lol.
