Forever Young

Tuesday, 13 November 2012

It's funny, but whenever someone asks for 'Forever Young' by Bob Dylan, 
they always want it on black! Great for a 21st birthday present, but for a new baby? Well... it makes more sense to give something that will grow with them!

Turquoise-y blues & greens stand out wonderfully on the black canvas.... I really liked the shadow cast by the cling film! Scrunched up cling film laid onto wet acrylic randomly daubed across the canvas create amazing patterns. It works with watercolour on paper too... 
and you can manipulate the film & squish it around a bit to help blend the colours. 

Look at the textures! I've even heard of someone 'injecting' colour into the folds 
to add more colour to the veins in the patterns.

Flashes of silver add a little more light & excitement.... hmmm, on this photo the blue looks a bit patchy, but it was more blended in real life!
