Trio Of Canvases – Part 3 – A Galaxy Far Far Away, Or Is It?

December 18, 2015 — 5 Comments

Today’s post concludes the trio of canvases that I created with the same materials.

It’s difficult to say for sure but I think this might just be my favourite.

As with the last two creations the starting point was covering the canvas in mod podge and then the kitchen towel.

This time though I didn’t move it around too much, I just worked in little wrinkles and ridges and let it set.

Again, as before, I gave it a base coat of purple paint.

This time though I changed the way I applied the way that I applied the pearlescent paints by working flat rather than dribbling it.

I worked several layers of paint and toning glaze, spritzing each to ensure a good spread.

To finish I darkened off the edges and dry brushed some gold paint over the ridges.

And that my friends was it.

Now for this one I didn’t work with a particular ‘scene’ in mind but I feel that I ended up with a pretty awesome interstellar Galaxy cloud!

I’m told that this is quite relevant as a Brit recently went into space and there was a new movie out or something – *looks vacant and bemused*.

Anyway, I’ve still got Christmas to prepare for so I’d best crack on.

See you again soon :)

    Hello John, I really love this one, I love the all over texture and beautiful mix of colours, I could look at it for ages. As you mentioned, the ‘Galaxy’ feel very appropriate at present with Tim in Space and a certain film out! (I am going to see it on Sunday with grandchildren, that’s our excuse!). I shall think of your Galaxy while watching what Hollywood has to offer x
