Sculptured

I have recently found my way to different media gels that can be incorporated into paintings. My favorite is a heavy stucco gel that, when laid down over heavy paper or multimediaboard, can be drawn into to create the image I am after. The technique is termed intaglio or impasto. I then use watercolor to finish. Often sandpaper is used in the finishing process. I have a few examples below. They can be found in the Paintings of a Texturephile - Images collection on Saatchi.com.
