It can be a challenge to enlarge a favorite small format image onto a bigger substrate.
Here the 8x8" canvas had some texture from crafted acrylic tissue paper
collage pieces. I was able to skim paint across those hills and valleys and
leave a nice abstract image with ease. The larger 30x30 canvas had virtually no
texture like that so I'm using a palette knife and loose strokes to create some visual
texture. I think it's working.

This has an appx 1/2" white border for a total width of 15x22 watercolor paper.
Painted intuitively with juicy acrylics using a silicone spreader - no brush marks. The new tools
in my toolbox. Loose pencil or charcoal marks show through lending some surface interest.
Contact me if you have an interest. Ready for your choice of frame.

I activate the surface before I ever start painting. It's a great way to loosen up and
destroy the fear of a blank substrate. Also, by veiling with glazed colors, some
of these marks remain creating interest. Love this process.
