Canvas #4: Playing with Colours
So I bought this massive pallet of colours from Wallack's last week, and absolutely couldn't wait to try them out! I decided to dedicate a canvas specifically to this endeavour.
First, I painted the canvas a warm grey to help neutralize the whiteness of the canvas. I also find that a primed canvas holds other colours much better.
Once the base layer was dry, I grabbed a bunch of paint brushes and the lid of a big Tupperware container (because I'm too good for an actual palette, clearly).
Squirted out a glob of each of the colours I intended to use onto the lid.
...and started painting free-hand.
I did two coats of each colour.
After the top of the canvas was done, I decided I wanted to do something with the sides.
Taped it off all the way around.
Played around with raw umber and white.
Waited for it to dry, and then pulled off the tape.
Then sealed it up with ModPodge!
