Painting Day!

Gouche-and-Gesso-Face-from-kate-thompson-class-copy

Had fun painting on a rainy afternoon on a piece of previously prepared white muslin coated with Venetian plaster. I used a lesson from one of Kate Thompson’s online classes, but chose to work with gouache, re-inkers and gesso rather than acrylic paint. Love the technique of painting on Venetian plaster, whether it is applied to fabric or a wooden canvas.

For Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday; I used kk_cotton for the texture set to Multiply at 47% opacity. The Christ Child figurine is from the nativity scene from my childhood. I just found it as we were cleaning out my Mom’s garage. The set is now happily displayed once again!
