This 24×30 gallery wrapped deep canvas piece that’s still in the works. The photo probably doesn’t do the detail justice. I began by covering the entire surface with double shuen paper using rice paste. That was followed with walnut and sumi ink spritzed and brushed on; then a coating of 50/50 matte medium. Still not satisfied with the surface, I then pasted more shuen papers that have been rolled with black relief paints. On top of that are acylics both brushed and rolled. It still isn’t finished as I’m experimenting with text and color to add yet another dimension. I enjoy the process of slowly building up the design gradually until it has a satisfying balance of both texture and color.
