Triptych Teesha Style


I had a bit of a brain wave last night and rushed off to gesso three square coasters, I didn't get any further as Fraz wasn't happy I'd moved, so I had to retreat back to the settee so he could sit on me through the rest of the fireworks!! So this morning I painted them in dylusions paints, but it wasn't thick enough and you could still see the writing on the beer mats, so I went over them with the Dina Wakley heavy bodied paints, that sorted them out. Made the border from odd bits and bobs and then created my main image.


Stuck the middle section on first and then cut the top and bottom off the main image and lined them up on the respective mats. Outlined the image with a black fude ball pen as it works great over Dina's paints, added a few lines and doodles and filled in the backgrounds with a white sharpie pen.


Once I'd taken the previous photo above, I decided it needed more doing to it, so I added some colour to the cheeks and some freckles. Spruced up the hair a bit more, gave the shoes a colour lift and added a few dots to the borders.

Over at PaperArtsy they have a theme of triptych and Stampotique have a theme of bright colours.
