I was challenged to create a canvas in honor of breast cancer awareness -. I decided to focus on the color pink and an create an urban angel of hope.
I looked through magazines and found an image I wanted to work with - and cut out the figure, and lightly marked off the area where she would be placed on my canvas (so as not to paint that spot with the pink)
I added some dictionary pages and my magazine clipping, and painted over the image with clear gesso. Then I used the existing image as a guide to paint over. I also turned the printed paper into wings, by just sketching around them with a Stabilo pencil.
I traced over the lines of the wings with the Dimensional Crystal and added some stencilled patterns using modeling paste.
My pink background seemed too over powering, so I brushed on some gesso, and then blue. I added a die cut crown and bird to finish up this canvas.
