Painted Artist Canvas with Gessoed Objects For Texture

Nine Textured Black Paintings

I was playing with items that have textures. I glued the items to the canvas, covered the items with gesso (Gesso is found near artist paints. It's a surface prep, bonds to just about anything and helps firm up the objects to be painted) and then painted the canvases black. The textures from left to right/top to bottom.

bubble wrap
terry cloth wash cloth cut into strips
Spanish moss (it's used in arranging silk flowers in a pot)

manila folder strips with paper punches
seed beads

pepper corns
foil pieces raised into shapes
feathers minus the quill (I make feather Christmas trees and the feathers are striped from the quills)
