Howdy folks, Lisa here with a new TCW blog update.
After my last blog post “Let Stencils be the Hero”, where I reworked an unfinished canvas, I have again, created a piece on a large canvas 75 cm x 100 cm that had been put away for 18 months, obviously waiting for this very opportunity to revisit.
This is the piece, above, with which I started this creative session. I created this piece using acrylic inks, acrylic paints and stencils.
When I received my TCW stencils and saw the TCW813 Blueprint stencil this piece was born in my head, because my partner is a Draftsman, so I wanted to create an abstract family portrait.
Using TCW9002 Black Gesso I created four basic figures to represent our family unit.
I then added detail to each figure using TCW stencils. I love multi layering stencils with acrylic paints.
TCW stencils used on this work include TCW381 Quatrefoil ,
Each figure representing one of my loved ones, so extra details were added onto the piece using
TCW9011 Matt Medium to individualize each figure.
I was a little undecided about the background and changed my mind during the progress of the piece, from TCW9002 Black Gesso to TCW9001 White Gesso then a mix of both, with a splash of TCW9010 Silver Gesso as well.
I really like the results
The man of the house was asked to hang it as soon as it was dry.
I love my new abstract family portrait.
Thanks you all so much for dropping by the TCW Blog today.
I hope you are inspired to create your own family portrait using the incredibly versatile TCW stencils.
See You very soon
