1.5 inch Gallery Wrapped Stretched Canvas
This Elephant Ear leaf was textured with a fork as a tool. Dragging through only thick acrylic paint, fascinating texture lines start to form as sgraffito impressions reveal the dark color underneath and light exotic yellow-green on top. Final touches of palette knife disturb the monotony to create an odd interest. Being painted over a non-stick surface creates a paintskin when dry that enables peeling off which helps with positioning easily on to the canvas.
A paintskin also enables lifting of the paint off the surface to form curls and bends that create a sculptural surface. The background and sides are also painted white to add quality, preservation, and sure stands out for a clean look. Whole piece is then also varnished to protect from environmental factors.
