Tutorial: Acrylic Relief and Watercolor Painting on Canvas

Welcome to today's tutorial, where I'm excited to show you how I've crafted my latest art pieces using Sennelier Abstract Liners and watercolors on canvas.

This method adds a tactile element to your canvas by creating a raised surface that securely holds the watercolors until they dry. The result is a captivating stained glass effect, paired with a touch of traditional painting charm.

During this process, I decided to blend metallic watercolors with traditional ones. The metallic hues dry with a splendid sparkle, adding a sense of depth to your artwork that's truly captivating.

For the finishing touches, I rely on Micron Waterproof pens. These pens are like a hidden gem, allowing you to infuse your art with intricate details that breathe life into your creation.

I must say, this technique has been incredibly fulfilling. I developed a deep appreciation for the final outcome, and I'm genuinely hopeful that you'll feel the same way about your own pieces.

Now, let's talk about the supplies you'll need for this tutorial:

  • Sennelier Abstract Liners in the color of your choice.
  • Canvas in any size you prefer. A tip: back-stapled canvases eliminate the need for framing.
  • Watercolor paints – I opted for both traditional and metallic shades.
  • Micron pens – an essential for adding those exquisite finishing touches.

This journey has truly been an enriching one for me, and I'm excited to see where it takes you. The process of creating art with a tactile quality is truly rewarding, and I encourage you to explore this technique. So, gather your materials, and let's embark on a creative adventure that's as distinctive as your artistic spirit!
