Studio Scenes: Stellar's Jay
In the studio this week, the bright blue bird called Stellar's Jay, painted with acrylic paint, gesso, and crackle paste on 5 1/2 x 6 inch wood.
I started with a black gessoed wood board, then painted the picture with acrylic paint.
When completely dry, add the crackle medium. My crackle medium practice is looking better...
The cracks form the way the brush strokes, so the secret is to criss-cross your paint brush and smooth any inconsistencies.
Thanks for visiting!
