The Simon Says Challenge this week is to "Paint It Up" and I did! I haven't done a canvas in ages. This one has been in creation mode on and off for a few weeks and then it all seemed to come together.
My base consists of a mix of of teal and blue lumiere pearlescent paints, with some lovely text pages and natural papers layered on and a final top paint layer of copper and gold lumiere paints. I toned down the text pages with some white acrylic paint and aged them with some soft Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink although that is mostly obscured in the final product.
I love the winsome and beautiful faces of these "gypsy" women. I knew what I wanted the title to be from the beginning but could not decide on how I wanted to add it and then I came across some Scrabble tiles that seemed perfect with the tones of the piece.
Hope your gypsy heart imbues your art this week!
