Final Post for Beveled Art Tutorial….Completed Piece

Hey you!  For the final step in this project you’ll need black pastels such as these….

This is the easiest part of the process but also just brings the whole piece together.  You’ll take your black pastel and outline each block fairly thickly.  Then taking a clean dry brush you’ll blend in the black pastel with up and down movements until fully blended.  See Below

Here are some finished shots of the outlined blocks…..

                        

And the Final Product is Below along with a cropped version that I’ll use for prints.

I truly hoped you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and even if you don’t follow step by step, hopefully you’ve gotten some techniques that piqued your interest.  Again I would love to see pictures.   Don’t forget to visit me on Facebook and Like Hummingbird Studios Page and follow us on Twitter OR sign up for our newsletter to your right.  You’ll get a free transfer technique and Monthly updates  and tutorials from Hummingbird Studios.   As Always Peace and Light from Hummingbird Studios and a Happy New Year!

How will my students finish what I’ve begun?

Well, my students have been asked to create two installations for our school!  Given Two large bundles of canvas, Thanks you to our Principal, as we study Shape, one of the Elements of Art, we decide to collage shapes.  You know I’m all about the frugal way to create and these collages are made simply using vintage papers and magazine pages, along with some acrylic paints and paint markers!!!  One installation will be in triangles and the other in rectangles and squares.  We’re using white as I’ve shown below as an example, then reds and browns and greens with the rest  of the canvases.  I can’t WAIT to see what my talented students do to finish what I’ve started!  Stay tuned for the final project.  In  the mean time, these will be made available as prints on Red Bubble and Artspan….  I’ve already had one client inquire as to a purchase, although the orignals are already spoken for and were meant to be hung in the school, they are now asking for prints.  Check out Red Bubble or ArtSpan by clicking the images Below and it will lead you to the opportunity to buy prints….who knows, when the kid’s work is done….. it might be even better!!!

New Canvas Swap

Ok you…I’ve decided to join in with some online friends and do a canvas swap. We’re each taking an 11×14 canvas board…putting whatever our muses dictate upon the canvas and then mailing it to the next person.
