ATC Workshop Lesson 8 - Gesso and Magazine Images

These were quite suprising. Magazine images are adhered to cardstock. A bit of gesso is dry brushed on. After that, the image was outlined with black pen. The idea then is to paint in and add too, like a 'paint by number'. I am not very skilled with a paint brush, and don't have any really nice small ones anyway. So I colored in with my brush makers, chalks, and water soluble oil pastels. This technique turns a magazine image into something that looks 'painted' Loved it!
