Acrylic on wet canvas
A new technique discovered this week: paint on wet canvas. It’s pretty simple.
Just buy the raw unprimed canvas (without coat of gesso) in art store, then soak the canvas under the tap or in a bucket of water. At first the water won’t penetrate the canvas, it must be completely immersed and long enough to get the desired result.
Once wet, the moisture in the fabric will allow us to mix colors directly on the canvas like watercolor. The paint will soak the canvas and spread into cauliflower. Be careful if you want a clean line, it is better to paint it once the paint is dried.
It is possible to fold the wet canvas. Folds will remain once the canvas is dried.
I played a lot with the folds to get a cracked, natural effect. Then I worked in thickness to add more dense, brighter colors.
