celebration by lovelycristina celebration by lovelycristina
this one is for celebrating 1 year on deviantart.
it's dedicated to :iconarchann: for introducing me in this world (DA), for his constant support and for being a great friend and artist.
and 'couse he encouraged me to paint again!
hurrah!

ok, I think that some explanations is needed:
the surface is board with canvas.
the lower part is made with some... let's say like cement (material used to stick ceramics on walls and floors), modelled with paint knife.
after dry, applied over all, oil colours and some glue. :-) (the soft lines on relief.)

dimensions:40x50 cm

and, believe me, it looks better live! the relief on some places is thick approx. 2 cm........and the light changes everything again and again...............

This piece is magnificent. I'm a huge fan of texture, I'm almost crying because I can't just reach my hand through the screen and touch it.

I'm one of those weird kids you see in art galleries being hovered over by the attendants for leaning too close to the paintings. I crave texture.

Sculptural relief textures - the full impact cannot be gauged on the flat computer screen (or even a print). I guess the cement-like material is grout. However, a much more lasting material (as well as more flexible, particularly when used on canvas) to use for texture is acrylic modelling paste (here is a [link] to get your search started), which is a acrylic base with ground marble. I had used it quite successfully over 30 years ago, and it stands the test of time very well.
Hope this comment is not too didactic.
Cheers
Otto
