Abstract Canvas Series

Usually when I set out to paint, I have a rough idea of what I want it to look like. However lately, I've been trying to let the canvas evolve in a more organic manner. This takes a lot of letting go and trusting the process.

For these canvases, I knew I wanted to paint three small pieces and use a bit of magenta. These canvases are 4x4 inches. That's all the parameters I put on myself. When I started, I just dove in with my magenta paint. From there, I took each layer as it came. The good thing about painting on three canvases and using acrylic paint is there was time for all the layers to dry without stopping much. I don't remember how many layers I ended up with, but there are quite a few. I used texture paste and stencils, embossing powder and glitter, gloss medium with paint, and randoms marks to add interest through out. 

In the end, I'm very happy with how they turned out!
