Title:
Bob Marley
Description:
This piece was commissioned for a local pub, wanting to show appreciation to legends of music. This particular piece was almost binned as I really had no idea how to approach this, I was going to do a stencil of it but then last minute decided not to. In the end i decided to get some masking fluid and i filled in all the white areas i didn't want to paint over. Although i did not test the next bit it actually made for an interesting effect. I began to paint the black areas with acrylic not giving much thought to the end result, so i painted over the edges of the masking fluid like you would with water-colour but it then occurred to me that acrylic is polymer based and dries hard unlike water-colour. As i pulled off the masking fluid it, the acrylic paints edges began to flake and peel but to my surprise made an interesting effect. To add to the experimental look of the piece i added textured wallpaper and sand to the canvas and acrylic to give it a new dimension. I finished up with painting vanish to seal the rough edges.
