Day 64

Process, Shadows

Medium + Method: Acrylic. Brush. Canvas paper. Toothpick. Chisel.

The Backstory: I was eager to try the paint-scraping technique using Shadow Generator 2.0, which means I can generate more complex and larger shadows. Unfortunately, the paint dries so quickly (even with ample retarder) as to undermine the beauty of this technique. I will need to either use different paint (i.e., oils) or reserve this technique for small spaces (yes, dear Reader, I went a bit beyond the 4×4 constraints today; call it artistic license).

Day 62: One of those days

Out of sorts, Shadows

Medium + Method: Acrylic. Brush. Sharpie. Canvas board.

The Backstory: Do you ever have one of those days where everything is a bit out of sorts? Today, I had no desire to paint, which is okay because the 4×4 Challenge is about filling the canvas every single day with something. That something is normally paint, but today I filled it with lines and words written in ink.
