My Art: Ch. 16

So I have been experimenting with a whole new style. Well not completely new, I keep my crazy off-beat representations of objects but I have added a new element to the process. Something I've been wanting to try for a while now. Transfers. Mostly just text thought because that's the part I don't like adding on with paint or pen. Primarily just because it comes out too bold, like it wasn't meant to be part of the piece. With transferred text I get a fairly faded, reduced form of ink. I also thoroughly enjoy the process. 

These piece has a painted background with paper elements added. I transfered the text onto white copy paper that I had painted and glued to the surface prior to transfer.

Text transferred to painted surface. Acrylic on Masonite Board.

Text transferred to painted surface. Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas. 

The main image was transferred onto 8x10 gallery wrapped canvas then painted over. Pen and paper were added after.
