Project #24 Paint Textures

Wednesday, 18 June 2008 by Irene Hoofs

...inspired by one of Arounna's son (Lliam) favorite authors Eric Carle
...this project is about creating textures from the paint giving the collage a
lot of interesting tones and surfaces

What you will need:
*tempera or acrylic paint (I used tones of black - colour would also work)
*flat large brushes
*large sheets of poster paper (poster paper have a bit of sheen to it -
*similar to finger paint paper)
*scissors, glue stick
*1 sheet of white bristol board
step one:
..take tempera paint and water it down and paint on the poster paper in dry
manner - creating brush strokes and texture. (allow to thoroughly dry)
step two:
..the first part of the still life I created a table giving it slight angles
to give a perspective feel.  The cut out shapes are glued down
..I than began to cut out various shapes like a bowl and bottle and plate
with some food.
..try to look at the different textures and tones to give contrast to your

..It would be fun to also set-up your own still life and use as an
inspiration or you can build the still life from your imagination.
