|After Gesso is added.|
|After Paint is added.|
I have tried a few 'quilt it then paint it' experiments but this is my first one using gesso after quilting. You can see I also added some beads and a little hand stitching before adding gesso and painting. This was really fun and is still a work in progress.
It has several layers of watered down acrylic (first layer after the gesso) as well as some different colors of Lumiere Russet, Copper and Gold. I did decide it was too metallic and added some Violet Jacquard Textile Color with a sponge brush, gently pulled across the top.
My favorite part of this are the my little circles that meander across this piece. I think they now look like stones in a river.
I am curious what you see and what you like about this experiment? Ever done anything similar? More to come as I will be adding some satin stitching to the sides and maybe add some more beads and hand stitching. More to come
