Blank Canvas No. 1

The canvases I recently ordered are 10" x 20" gallery profile; which are significantly larger than the usual 6" x 6" I'm used to working with. I decided to tackle the first canvas by covering it with a layer of acrylic paint in analogous hues. So, I chose shades of lavender and blue.

Next I added random bits of scrap papers and sponged on more paint in the blue/violet family.

And, lastly, because you know I can't resist gold, I sponged on a metallic gold paint. Well, I say lastly, but this is just the end of the first stage. Now I actually have to make this into an art piece. Stay tuned! :-D
