Palmetto Tree With Impasto Background

Palmetto Tree Sunset

Palmetto Tree Sunset

Kathy here today to share another palmetto tree painting.  Last year I shared one on this blog (see it here) and ever since I’ve wanted to make another as a complement. I want to hang them on either side of a large window in my house. When I made the first one, I applied Sorbet and Velvet mediums with super heavy gesso using a palette knife very thick so that you could see and feel the texture.  I didn’t know that this technique had a name until recently.  It’s called Impasto. Here is the definition according to Wikipedia:

Impasto is a technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface very thickly, usually thick enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible. Paint can also be mixed right on the canvas. When dry, impasto provides texture and the paint appears to be coming out of the canvas.

Here are more detail shots of the canvas.

Butterfly Kisses Mixed Media Canvas by Toni

Hi everyone…. today I have a fun mixed media canvas that was inspired by the butterflies in my garden…DSC08225

I used two canvases, one smaller than the other… The first one had wonderful stencils from Art Anthology (listed below) and our gorgeous Velvet & Sorbet paints, sprays and inks (listed below) to make this colorful piece.

The top canvas was cut back and curled to create an eye. The eyeball was made from a large acrylic piece and then I used Baby Blue Eyes (Sorbet) & Chocolate (Velvet) to make the eyeball.  I used Coloration Sprays to color my pretty chipboard butterflies. DSC08211 - Copy

The Gemstone paints in Fluorite & Blue Topaz worked beautifully on my metal flowers. To add a luscious glow to the entire piece I mixed Gold Metal Effects with water in a spray container and spritz it here and there. DSC08227

Wishing you a wonderfully creative week… hope this has given you knew inspiration for a project using multiple canvases and the use of Art Anthology products.
