Beautiful work Victoria! I love how the negative space has been filled in in only some places....

Toni said...

Caught my eye! Mind me asking how you are applying the gesso?

Debbie said...

Vicky, hurry home so we can watch you do this and all your other cool techniques! You are so prolific!

Victoria said...

Thanks Ladies..
Well, I'm having fun anyway. Nothing that is finished here, just a lot of techniques. I'm in in play mode and that's always good.

Toni, the gessos are various pours, drips and squeeze bottling.
Gotta get just the right consistancy though and that's what I've been playing around with...Getting the right formula.
I might just resurrect that Absract Flourishing class someday when I get it right.

Nancy said...

Vicky, those are wonderful - can't wait to see them in person.

Kristen said...

Wow!!! Will the gesso be gold-leafed? What creates all the colors?

Toni said...

Thanks Vicky for answering my question. hmmm just might have to play some.

Anna said...

Soooooooooo cool! It's obvious you're having great fun.....xoxox---anna

Victoria said...

Thanks Anna...I am having fun when I get a chance to play.
Artroom is under construction so I get only little windows of time.

To Kris.
Maybe they will be leafed. Maybe just part of them. Still working on more gesso formulas.

Color is a vis-a-vis pen outlining the flourish and then sprayed.

Vicki -- these are great! Your "prolificness" is definitely impressive.

Beth Lee said...

Oh, these are very very cool. I love the idea of gesso as an ink stop for bleeds.
