Black + White

No, my love of color has not ended but a recent commissioned project took me on a detour back to black and white. I had so much fun with these pieces, because I used stretched canvas panels - a first for me!

The friend, who commissioned the following pieces, wanted something elegant with a modern twist. She loves silhouettes and the room they are going in is predominantly black and white.

This is what I started with:

Then, I glued down a background and silhouette on the front of each canvas:

Finally, I finished each piece, first with a glossy sealer, then a matte finish to build up texture. The sides were gallery wrapped with contrasting paper then also sealed.
