Acrylic and Canvas

Today, I went to a book signing event at A Work of Heart Studio ttp://www.aworkofheart.com/in San Jose, CA.  Mixed media artist/author Roxanne Padgett of Acrylic Techniques in Mixed Media, discussed the techniques explored on various samples.  By playing with various techniques and materials, “your own personal style will emerge.”   Roxanne encouraged all of us to “fear no color.”

Here is my first attempt at layering and stenciling with acrylic on canvas:

After the layering, I outlined a variety of shapes using a colored sharpie marker and a gold metallic pen.

As I turned the sample, I noticed different shapes and patterns emerge.

This was so much fun!
