I am often inspired by other artists and try to discover how they created that wonderful “thing.” In some cases you can look and discover, other times it is trial and error, and sometimes you are lucky enough that they have are willing to teach you.
In the theme of discovering gesso, I have been thinking about not only adding color to gesso but texture as well. The more attention to detail I can add at the beginning takes my paintings that one step further. I was reading the Blog Art and Cupcakes and ran across this great post: Fun with Gesso – Color Love #27
There are three great techniques highlighted in this Blog that I recommend trying: “Thin application of Gesso with a Stencil,” “Thick application of Gesso With a Stencil” and “Paintbrush Application of Gesso.”
