aloha team members,...this is not DMP but might be fun to follow, rolling the dice here,..
lthe below is a sea chart I bought and I have aged it with tea leaves / sugar / sand / etc,..( I will not sear or burn until painted and sealed )
i will embellish it with some marine sail boats and maybe a whale or two - irs 4 feet wide by 3 feet deep and taped to my new easel,..a wall.
looking for some suggestions and ideas, I would like to paint with Geneva oils and obviously can only prepare the surface with clear gesso,...maybe another media would be best,..
i would give some guidance - I want to retain the islands and the text, so painting real estate is limited
ideas / ref photo very welcome
inspired by other artists that do this type of work; but not with the aging of the map,..
this is is for one of my walls - went of the koi fish,..,
