Old Country House
This is a taped picture. What I mean by taped is this: You save the lightest light and tape that part you wish to save. Paint a thin layer of paint over the entire painting. Tape again the area's you wish to save. You do this until the entire painting is covered in tape. It takes a very long time to do and you never are really sure how it is going to end up. That's the part I find enticing. You can fix the painting, but be careful because if you paint too much you will lose the taped look. This photo that I used was taken on a trip with a friend to England. We were out in the country driving around just looking for places to photo. Acrylic on Yupo.
