Hurricane Ike continued

These pages had also been prepared earlier as I was continuing to play around with this same stencil. For the background, I first painted with "Melted Butter" which is a very pale yellow, and then overpainted with Periwinkle, Robin's Egg, Morning Blue & Winter Blue. Look carefully, and you'll see where I glued an old dictionary page on the right side and dabbed more color on top of it. When this was good and dry, I positioned the stencil with temporary adhesive and sprayed it with shiny black paint. Then I embellished the figure with acrylic paints. You can click on the picture to enlarge it for a better look.

I love the way the stencil looks painted with the acrylics!
