Abstract canvas "Space Stories" with video tutorial for Finnabair

Hello lovely creative friends! Today I'd like to share with you my new Art. This time I wanted to create a picture for a cosmic fantasy. After all, we can make a very interesting and individual project with materials for mixed media. A variety of textures and shades-your best assistants!

I started by applying a texture paste to create a relief on the canvas. I chose two stencils, one with a large pattern from 7 Dots Studio, and with a smaller one, this is “Manuscript” from Finnabair. It's always great to combine different sized identical materials.

In order to add color I started with thick Impasto Paints. They are dense and very beautiful, with them you can feel like a real artist! I started with light shades and gradually added dark ones. I used Metallique Acrylic Paints for more shine and variety. Here I applied them with ordinary sponges tapping on the canvas. This is a simple but cool technique! Little by little I worked in different shades of blue and purple, adding a White Gesso in the middle for light accents. Added Mica Powder to make even more shine and highlight the relief.
I also drew a planet and made it three-dimensional with paints and gesso. A little more constellations and splashes and space is ready!

I invite you to watch my video tutorial to see the whole process of creating my project. Enjoy!

Thank you for visit my blog today!
With love, Olya.
