My Plywood Cityscape
This is how far Ive gotten, and Im not sure what Im doing next…so many ideas..!
before white paint..
a new plywood..adding layers
..here I am just adding a few shades of blue craft paint and blending a bit
..do a layer of paint, and then wipe some off…
now Im adding some more paint..a different color and a different brand..this is Golden Liquid acrylic..it has a much higher pigment content, and a little goes a very long way..it is also not as much of a “matt” finish so it will add to the luster of the sky..
..I squirted a bit of water onto the page..
now I swill continue adding some more layers of blues..and a bit of purple and..continue wiping off and adding more paint until I get the color that I like..
now I will add some acrylic gloss medium to the wet paint…
and blend it in with my finger..
..I will continue on to the other side making it a bit lighter on the left as that is the sunrise side…I also journaled about what lies beneath each of us and our art..at this point it is still needing more layers of blues….but sometimes I work on other parts and go back to the layers..
after more layers of blue I will begin adding some details on the buildings..and the sky..
How I created my DLP from Art To The 5th… Cityscape..Part 1 ..
..so I started with a full spread in my journal
…doodle all over the page..I chose flowers and leaves because that is what I love to doodle..but you can choose any marks you enjoy making..lines and swirls, or dots and circles….or faces..or houses etc…anything you enjoy creating that will make it totally yours..your personal touch..!
then I gathered some gesso and paints..
..and I covered my page with random paints…
..i then took some papers I made with my handmade eraser stamps..and I will use these to cut my building shapes..
..I cut all different shapes..tall and short…wider and thinner..and laid them out in a pattern that I liked..
..I covered some with thin coats of paint..details will come later..
..then I gathered some shades of blue for the sky..
and started to mix and blend the color together..stay tuned for part 2 on Monday..!
