Do you remember that art project where you used a piece of poster board and covered it pretty solidly with random-colored crayon, then covered that with black India ink, which, when dry, you scratched a design into, uncovering the color below, in the scratched design? I think everyone did this in elementary school. This was a similar process. I filled three layers with color. Yellow on the bottom, deep blue over that and black on the top. Then I used the "eraser" tool to scratch through layers to create the design.

I love the idea of nighttime scenes, but it is hard to get enough contrast to really make them work. I have recently completed two fabric pieces with "night" themes.
The Moon is a Mirror
It is a theme I will continue to explore.
Next weeks theme: Purple

We had scratchboard in jr high, but I don't remember the crayon/ink process. Doesn't mean we didn't do it, HA! Cool electronic reinterpretation!ReplyDelete
