Oil on velvet!

August 29, 2009

I’d heard mixed ideas (some say Leeteg did it, some say it doesn’t last), but looks good so far!

Steve Jobs

First attempt at actual paint on velvet.

July 11, 2008



And photographed, with subject:

You can zoom in really close on the first and see how matted the nap got with the acrylic paint. I either used too little or too much extender/retarder in an attempt to layer thin glazes of color. Note to self: lint roller first, and look into different brush types.

Also, I am 28 as of today. That is all.

First finished piece of black velvet art.

Medium used: oil pastels. Very easy to manipulate, but hard to achieve saturation on the same level as paint. This was scanned in rather than photographed so the brightness and contrast are much higher than life.
