Peace and calm.
For this painting, I mixed together, in approximately equal portions, matte white house paint, PVA glue and talcum powder to create a texture paste. I applied it to the board with a palette knife, then drew into it with a wide-toothed comb. The lines have softened but are still clearly visible.
After it had dried thoroughly, I painted a very diluted glaze in pale blue with a little red over the painting to allow the paint to pool in the creases. I then used my gelli plate to add texture to the surface in burnt umber and white.
Check back tomorrow for another painting.....
