Creating Textures

Postby Singular » Tue Jun 06, 2006 4:16 pm

What kind of techniques do you all use for creating painting textures? Do you use mixed medium on your canvas or do you use a specific application method? I have always been a huge fan of the pallette knife and actually have become rather good at using it. I know that one of our gallery artists, Debi Tonge, uses gesso and dry
ush oils with several glazes to create different texture. Do any of you have any hidden secrets that you would like to share?

best regards,
Joe

I use Gesso... typically when doing a texture...
However, I also have done more 3-D paintings of where sculpture is involved and then painted over to incorporate more into the peice.. For this I've used Plaster, Mulched Papermache'.. and even textured fa
ics... such as cheesecloth or burlap.

Depends on the peice though...

In watercolor texture is achievable by using salt in wet paint, rough dry
ush in layers etc. Since watercolor is naturally all one layer texture has to be in the way the paint is manipulated thru the
ushwork or other tricks.

Yes that is a watercolor. With a lot of practice you learn how the paint will most likely blend on wet paper so that you don't end up with mud. My tabby painting is the result of years of practice and painting.
