Yesterday, my mood was subtle. Today, I was definitely in an artsy mood when I finished this urn. It's nearly three feet tall, and I love the cherubs.
It's made of fiberglass, and had a hideous straw like finish when I found it. Take my word for it. I was in such a hurry to get at it, I don't have an absolute before. I knew I would finish with white, but I wanted a multitude of layers underneath to give it depth and texture. I started with black gesso,
Followed by white gesso for extra texture. After that, I applied layer after layer of watered down paint in a sloppy irregular pattern. The colors I used included blue, terra cotta, and deep mossy green.
I finished by brushing on watered down white gesso. I let it drip in spots, and dabbed with my brush in others. Here are the results.
One last artsy shot.
Time to call it a day. I'll be sure to share where my mood takes me next.
