Painting the Shape with Text!

What colors do you feel like?

For me, adding paint is like breathing life into the art.
Text is not just words. What are your words whispering to you?
What colors express the nature of those words?

Egg with Text Painted

The colors I am using for the painting demos are Golden fluid acrylics: Phthalo Turquoise, Teal, Green Gold, and Napthol Red Light

IMPORTANT STEP!  BEFORE you begin to paint, brush a thin, thorough coat of matte medium on the surface of the page, and let it dry completely. This will seal the journal page, and make it easier and more forgiving to move the paint around with your brush.

The password for this demo of How to Paint the Shape with Text is: egg
