canvas play workshop
Pam led us for a workshop using different mediums on prepared canvas. It was a great day playing on canvas instead of paper, the traditional surface for modern calligraphy.
She first told us how to prepare canvas with a gesso to make the surface receptive to different treatments.
We divided a mounted canvas into quarters and used various washes of ink and gouache, gold and sculpting textures.
It was such fun playiing. thanks Pam.......
After that we used a small canvas and prepared it with a dark gesso and used balsa pens to make some great marks upon it, by removing the wet surface.It was such fun playiing. thanks Pam.......
