" Reflection "- Gelatos on Canvas

Hello everyone, Swarup here with a canvas that's worth framing!.......

........and all it took me to create this beauty were some GelatosĀ® and Stamper's Big Brush Pens.

Last week we had some totally unseasonal warmth and of course instead of snow we had some really heavy downpour.  This painting is a reflection of that beautiful winter evening . As I was driving through this rain , I noticed these beautiful colors being reflected in a puddle by the traffic signal, perhaps of the lights, colors of the cars and the sky, all blended together so well that it called for a beautiful painting!

..and what better way to depict water than by using water soluble Gelatos!

Here is step by step tutorial , so you can create one yourself..........

Step 1- Start with a pre- gessoed  canvas or apply 2 layers of gesso befor you start , it helps the color to spread more evenly and easily. Apply mettalic Teal Gelato and spray water using a spray bottle enough to move the color and let it drip. These Gelatos are  soft and creamy and full of rich pigment , they move so easily and despite all the water, the colors  stay extremely vibrant.

 Step 2- Apply metallic blue Gelato and repeat step 1

Step 5- Once you are satisfied with the  depth of colors and the canvas is completely dry, take a bottle cap and stamp those circles and fill them in using Stampers Big Brush Pens .

Step 6- let dry completely, then  take Glossy accents and apply it at the top and tilt your canvas so that it has the drippy effect, like water flowing on glass!,

Swarup

Swarup MI am a self taught watercolorist and a  trained textile designer . Over  the last 20 years I have  learned how to blend them both and bring that into my Papercrafting. I have been scrapbooking and card making for more than a  decade now and immensely enjoy creating these mini masterpieces as I like to call them. I consider every card I create to be  a miniature piece of art and  usually favor a clean and simple style in my card making..and  enjoy a bolder look in  my  Art journals. I enjoy photography and love to travel.

I  blog  as Sanketi and love sharing my work with others. I  have been published in Designed to color magazine , Simply Handmade and Cards Magazines.
