Masked and stenciled background. Frame style.


I'm definitely in the fall mood!  I've been wanting to do some pumpkins for some time.
I wanted to highlight Rebecca Baer's stencils in the design. 

 

I started by taping off a border around the canvas. I didn't measure-just eyeballed it.
The painted the whole  inside with  burnt umber. I used a "X" stroke to give more texture.

 Then I stenciled warm white on top with Dragonfly Fantasy 12x12 stencil. When I got to the bottom, just flip the stencil over and connect the pattern.
 Then I peeled the tape off and put it on the inside block. Used Cascade Stencil size 5.75x5.75 to do the border. I turned it while going around the edge.

 In order to tone down the brightness, I painted watered down gold over top the canvas.
I sketched my pumpkins out with a white charcoal pencil, then painted them in.

 I hope you're inspired to use your stencils in your artwork.
