Friday

An abstract piece...

Abstract

This year, my challenge to myself is to make art that isn't bounded by a fixed display stance. You can rotate it and view it from different angles. Like this abstract canvas featuring old computer parts. 


I started with scrunched up wrapping tissue and canvas which I painted blue. Then I adhered the computer cables with lots of gel medium.

Next I went in with some Maya mists, letting the colours drip between the cables. Then I added some Liquitex ceramic stucco using The Crafter's Workshop stencil.


After that, I used my fingers to apply Art Anthology paints to the piece for some shimmer and random texture.


And then finished with gesso applied with the palm of my hand.





I was inspired by the colours at the ARTastic challenge.

P/s: Happy weekend friends! :)
