Mixing It Up On Canvas
Although I have seen many fine examples of mixed media work on canvas, I had never tried it myself and it was time to do so.
The process for this work started by dividing the surface into sections and applying layers of collage using matte medium and undertones of color with acrylic paint. Each new layer that was added created more depth and interest and I liked working on the sturdy canvas. It's not shown here but the surface treatment goes right around the edges of the piece so no framing is necessary.
I'm already looking forward to the next adventure on canvas!
