The Blank Page and How to Face It!
Art Challenge: Gesso
Journal Prompt: “The beginning is always today.” -Mary Shelley
I started by covering the blank page with a layer of gesso, then spreading out acrylic paint over that.
I used gesso to create circles and then covered the pencil sketch of the girl.
With Gelato crayons I filled in the circles.
I used acrylic paint to finish the girl.
With graphite pencil I traced around each circle and then smudged to create shading.
I used a circle stamp and white acrylic paint to add more texture to the page.
Then added more gesso in a few places before finishing with letter stickers to add my song lyrics.
