fireplace II


I painted the chimneybreast with flat white primer again and while it was still wet I took a fine brush and randomly streaked black acrylic paint over the white and then took a wadded tissue and pounced over the black. Then I wet the tissue and dabbed it in a little raw siena and pounced it, then in burnt umber.

I made a fairly dilute dirty wash with the paint water from the primer & the dabs of acrylic left from "granite-ing" the chimneybreast and washed my "brickwork" with it and while that was wet I grated a bit of black pastel chalk directly onto it and used a fairly thick brush to smear it around.

Then I glued it together.
