Painting over 2 different types of backgrounds

Behind the Art with Christy TomlinsonThese pieces are also from Christy Tomlinson‘s Behind the Art class.  You can read more about it here and here.

This first canvas shows a neutral background that I added texture and a figure to.  The second project begins with texture and I added everything else after, trying to see a girl emerge from the patterns.

You can see the original collaged background of mostly ivory and white scraps.  Next to it is the final canvas, followed by a few detail shots.  I just put this first piece in my Society6 shop, where you can buy it as an iphone case, a tote bag, stationary, or a print.  Cool, right? I’m so excited about that.
