Bernie Berlin-gesso and magazine image tecnique




I belong to a yahoo group and the latest tutorial was the Bernie Berlin gesso and magazine image tecnique.


You take an image from magazine but I believe you can use all sorts of images from other places,adhere the image to card stock (I used pva) Gel medium was the desired stuff to use but i had none!.....wait to dry,then using white gesso(I used weak white emulsion) paint over image in a criss cross fashion and let dry. Once dry use perm marker/pen pencil to sketch over lines and add on what else you would like add to your artwork............You can then use pastels-paints-pencils-chalks to colour your new image and your imagination can go wild!




Here's my first two attempts
