|Girl in Striped Scarf|
9 x 12 oil on stretched canvas
Here's my first attempt at using the fracturing technique...done in oil paints which is not my usual medium of choice, though they are really nice. I ended up softening her face and not "fracturing" it. It started out fractured which you will see below, but I messed up and just could not achieve that look again, so I left it soft.
I highly recommend this video if you want to loosen up in your art work or if you just love to learn new things.
Here are some photos to show the process of this painting and the sketch I used to go by. It was a lot of fun and I want to give this a go with acrylics, though I think it will be a lot harder to do since they dry so fast. Julie talks about that in her video.
