AEDM day 22-23

this is my first of two exams to enter into texture town
offered by Chris cozen and Julie prichard
and you can find the information at
(oh and i passed :>) )
any way this is an intense amount of medium used to create the texture part of the painting
so it took around 48 hours to dry...then my process began to replicate a wall that was given to replicate in the lesson
it had old iron scroll work at the top then grime and rust down the stucco wall
or an interpretation of the old wall.
i have new found interest with stencils..but only a few in my possession to choose from
they are widely used in these processes and offer a great amount of relief to the overall look you might be going after in the painting.
so the stencil at the top of my painting is my
interpretation of scrolled iron work
this painting i like...i would buy this painting...rich hues that may not be coming across in the picture
of umber tones which i love..and even though i am not a contemporary fan...i like the contemporary feel to this piece...or maybe i am converting
i came a LONG way from the first lesson offered in this class...
i have been "professionally" painting for over 30 years...(in a more traditional style)
if a seasoned professional can gain from Julie and Chris's classes don't you think the novice would...
thank you for looking and enjoy the day
Happy Thanksgiving too
we have a lot to be thankful for!

Congrats to you.

Mar, thank you so much for the prayers that you sent to Stellan when he was injured. Your message meant the world to me and I will always remember what you did for us.
Thank you.
Much love
Michelle and Stellan

I love the feeling of layers of time in this painting Mary. Like something lovely you might stumble upon when exploring an old house. Happy thanksgiving too!

Wow, I've been away several days and need to catch up quickly. First, hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. Second, this is a marvelous piece. I am especially drawn to the textures you created. I certainly would have given you a GREAT grade!
