|This is the back side, and you can see that towards the top, I've begun to prep the dress form with Gesso. I have no formal plans on how I am going to paint it. We'll just see what evolves over time. And this is just for fun!
|Gesso has been brushed on all over the dress form
|First layer of acrylic paint. I used whatever was on hand - cheap stuff from Michael's, Liquitex and Modern Masters. The cheap stuff had the worst coverage. I followed the lines of the linen by mainly the seams.
|Stencils were used with red paint. Then I brushed on Liquitex Gloss medium to add another layer, to give the piece more dimension.
|I started the next layer of paint with circles and triangles, and nothing was planned as to how I was going to paint it. I just got the brush in my hand and went with it, which is unusual for me.
|Front with paint design. It so reminds me of my abstract art quilts. I am always intrigued by how the different mediums that I enjoy, influence each other.
|Front with the addition of black paint. I can't say whether or not I am done painting, but I am done for now, because my time is going elsewhere, for other projects that have deadlines
