It's 2012 and I am playing with a new material~~! It's always fun to discover new things, maybe that's why I love art so much! So, I've been playing with modeling paste on canvas before I layer acrylic paint on top. It's a really interesting medium, and it comes in all sorts of finishes (some even sparkling!!). For now, I'm creating parts of 3D texture and make certain shape stands out more. The texture it created on the canvas was pretty intense. I follow-up by using the dry-brush technique and stipple the hell out of the canvas. I find that when stippling the paint, it helps the texture maintain its looks. So far, the shapes are still quite abstract. I will investigate on this more and see how far it takes me!
