lynne perrella class

i was so excited working in class
that i forgot to take a picture of
my canvas in the begining
first we layered on gesso
mixed in tissue and cheesecloth
then rubber stamps, stencils, tools
anything that would help create some texture
lots and lots of texture
once it was dry the fun began when
we started adding the paint
you could see the texture come to life
above: after a few layers of color

i spent so much time on the painting
that i didn't get time to add any images
and i didn't want to rush it
we folded it in to book form

i love all the edges

i still have to paint the back
which will make them pop

i've scanned the whole project and selected
some of my favorite areas
it's amazing how much texture and detail
is in every square inch
(click on the image to really see the detail)

this class was sold out
so they are bringing back
lynne perrella
for october 10th and 11th
check out the
ink pad
for details
a special thanks to
anna , dante and v

This is really wonderful. Thanks for all the close up shots. The texture you created is unbelievable. Looking forward ro seeing it again after you add the images.

between your post and marie's i'm sorry i missed this, and especially sorry to have missed dinner. i was up in (equally hot steamy humid) massachusetts making glass beads.

Wonderful, wonderful ...so rich and lusciously textured. Wish I'd been there with you!
