This month at ARTastic is a fabulous challenge and a calloboration with C.S.I - Colors Stories Inspiration
Here is the inspirational Australian Government Vintage Poster c1930
and the criteria is to use Striped pattern paper
I decided to do a canvas and use the deck chair as my inspiration from the poster, and covered the criteria by painting the stripes on the deck chair canvas.
I painted the background using Jo Sonja's paints, the sand is painted in skin tone the sea is a mixture of blues and the sky was painted in greys using a technique called stippling.
The fence is made of icy pole sticks, cut down and made to look old and weathered painted and then using Decor Crackle. I added a seagull to the top of the fence.
The keep out sign is also made from icy pole sticks and stained with light oak wood stain.
The deck chairs are cut out and I painted over the wooden frame and the striped canvas. I also added the spade, bucket and boat and painted over these aswell.
The hat and glass are layered to give a dimensional look.
Lastly I added grass using a black pigment pen and a wash of different greens.
Here are some close up...
Thanks for a great challenge this month Jane and DT's
