Black and White Art-Making with Stencils


Despite undergoing cataract surgeries this past summer, I took an online class in black-and-white with Jane Davies.  (I'd paid for the course before knowing I would be having the surgeries in the same time-frame!)

I can't share the methods we participants used in art-making since that's part of Jane's class ... but I'll share the two pieces I created for one of her assignments, along with a few comments of my own.



Hot Air Balloons, made with my 9" x 12" stencil Facets.

I started with a mix of white gesso and matte medium and used the subtractive/reductive technique to lay in the stenciled area.

After the first piece, above, I switched to zinc white acrylic ... and liked its results much better:



Vases

These stencil-patterns of smaller vases in the upper left and lower right were created with my 9" x 12" stencil Vases.


 These stencils in their entirety look like this:
