PRAYER FLAGS (9" x 12") Stencil with OSPREY WINGS Stencil (6" x 6")
Two stencils were used in making this art on stretched canvas --
Background areas across the painting were created with Prayer Flags (9" x 12") ...
... and the focal area was developed with a mask I'd made using my 6" x 6" stencil Osprey Wings --
It's easy to make a temporary mask with a silhouette stencil like this one. I simply placed the stencil atop a sheet of sturdy cardstock and, with a fine-tip pen, traced along the edges of the top Osprey above.
To cut out the shape, I used fine-detail scissors by Fiskars. However, for fine-detail work (such as the wing edges), some artists prefer using Exacto knives and cutting mats.
After cutting out my temporary mask, I created my focal point, placing it on the canvas and, with a Sofft Sponge, daubing acrylic paints around it.
