I’ve been playing around with texture lately, trying to incorporate my love of nice tight lines with a looser and more painterly feel. I’ve been doing washes, droplets, and here I even used splattering for a little bit of the “galaxy” effect that is all the rage these days. This small piece was for a friend’s birthday, so I included a constellation for good measure. I’m currently in love with this process.
