As promised photos of my completed images from Tuesday night's Mold II club meeting where we were shown the 2 techniques - "Pointillism" & "Etching".
I am setting up this post on Friday afternoon to come live sometime on Saturday morning, as tomorrow I am out all day at another canvas workshop, so will probably not have time to blog.
So, here we go;
Here is my Etching sample which I have mounted onto black card to better show it. I decided to add a little colour to the centre. I think my fine lines could be neater but even so I am pleased with the finish.
Here is my Pointillism sample which is not actually the one I started at the meeting. & one again I have mounted it on black card to set it off. During that session I found my Promarkers bled quite a bit & I didn't like the finish. In order to have a go I thought I would use normal felt tip pens & then found that I didn't own any anymore. Fortunately the craft shop at Daleside had some cheap ones (for children I think) so I got a set of those to try it & much preferred the finish. I think if I want to continue using this technique - which I do - I might invest in a better quality felt pen & use them instead of Promarkers.
Loved both these techniques - will be using both.
I will show you photos of the canvas I create tomorrow some time next week because in the meantime I have a few 2015 club projects to photograph & show you.
Have a great weekend.
