Tonight, along with our textured piece (that we couldn't do last week because of freezing rain we will do an abstract piece. After creating a thinner spackle background texture with palette knife, a background colour is rollored over the canvas. Then paint is applied in patterned squares. While still wet, the painted squares are lightly brushed with a rough, large brush, vertically and horizontally, with the effect of roughly blending the colours beneath. Analaguous colours are best here, so you don't make too muddy a colour anywhere.
Then liquid craft acrylic is dripped onto the surface, and spots of same are added here and there. Finally, I added some dollar store wooden pieces just for fun. And fun it was!
Students may want to apply the paint daubs in an irregular pattern. They always come up with neat innovations.
