I made an instructable about how to paint illustrations
I invented a way to make the canvas more textural with layers of gesso. It is hard to see with the bad cammera’s results.
There is more and more people that make image art that can be related to with abstract intellect only. It has nothing to do with composition and color. Ever since the “modern” art movement started making images that had nothing to do with what people had learned for several hundred years, the whole rt seen has been searching for meaning. Now all you need is wild imagination to relate to image art. Maybe I can start painting abstract images with all the tools of illustration….??
