My Creative Process

I decided to share with you my creative process of creating an original piece of art. First I start with a sketch in my sketch pad. After I have determined what image I will use I prime my canvas. I use gel medium to texturize the canvas. I usually prime several at a time. Then after they are dry I paint a base coat of brown acrylic Liquitex paint. I used to use red or purple for my base coat but lately brown is my favorite, which also adds as an outline for my image.

Very cool, Mechelle. I haven't painted on canvas forever! You made me miss it for a second!! I love how the brown adds an outline. Cute birdies xoox
