Part 1 – The Background … When I’m creating a series I always work on more than one piece at a time. I do this for

many reasons, 1. To create faster, 2. To use like colors on my palette and less waste of materials, and 3. To keep

the creative juices flowing.

Enjoy the video!


I’m often asked, why take the time to create the background when most of it’s going to be covered?

But the background takes your piece from flat to interesting,

from boring to wow and it also tells the story of where your piece started.

The texture that’s provided by the background also creates

unexpected little things to happen when your painting your focal point or middle ground.

The technique of letting your stencils dry in the ink creates small raised area around the stencil design and creates some fabulous texture! Just be careful removing your stencils, so that you don’t tear your papers
