Texture Lesson

this is the final picture results but look at the bottom piece..i added just the smallest amount of the rusty brown color i mixed and the depth (to me) leaped off the canvas...
this is a Julia prichard Chris cozzen class called texture town....now i was truly thinking i didn't need this class... texture is texture and anyone can have it...but i have already in just 3 videos learned heaps!!! HEAPS!
This lesson was called implied texture...meaning everything is on one plane no textural products have been added just blending and shade...stamps and stencils...
definitely brings you more comfort to the texture zone...
thanks for looking and check Julie out
all her classes are interesting and have great projects...i can safely say everyone will come away with some new knowledge or tip...!
thank you dave for correcting me!!!!
:)

I can't believe I've missed so many posts! Where have I been? I just spent about 20 minutes catching up. Instead of trying to leave a bunch of comments, I will do it here.

Wow, those dogs look like they were the ones that lost. I'm so glad you had the rabies shots and I KNOW you knew where their records were from the cat incident.

That pond repair looks major. It is times like this I am glad I live in town. This looks like one costly repair and undetaking. I hope the concrete is now set.

Your turkey platter is just in time for the holidays. And it is gorgeous. I had no trouble getting a good idea of what the platter looked like. I also like the pheasant platter. I am in awe of your drawing abilities AND your glass abilities. I have read where you can get to the final stage in this labor intensive process and the glass will break in the kiln. I'm so glad that you know what you are doing. And that is ONE LOVELY candle vase. I'm not a "red" person when it comes to home decor, but I sure like the looks of this. Very intricate, especially after the second firing.

And finally (told you I needed to catch up) I really love the texture piece. I've said it before, you are so lucky to be able to take all these wonderful classes. I'm so glad you are learning so much. This is awesome. I never get shading right, even when I'm told what to do. I seem to put it in the wrong place. Have an art filled day, dear.

Hi, Mary! I love your painting. You have me drooling over this class! Looks like so much fun! :-)

Goodness Mary - I see what you mean about the depth. Just such a small amount of paint can make all the difference, can't it? I love the final result and I'm going to try and do some of what you've suggested here to some of my older unfinished pieces to see if that makes a difference. Good on ya for posting and getting me interested!!
