Large Mixed Media Canvas Completed
This canvas is over 2 feet wide and exactly 3 feet tall. I used scaled up versions of some of my favourite stencils, including text for texture and I thoroughly enjoyed working larger.
One of my artistic influences is Mark English, in particular, his landscapes. The tree stencils I use really do remind me of his work and I get a little buzz every time I use them in my own work.
I revisited his website yesterday and began to wonder if I could make my abstracts look more like landscapes and I noodled around with Photoshop, trying out some digital ideas. This is the result of layering some other paintings in places on this larger canvas. Now I need to experiment to figure out how to do this for real!
