MARBLED TEXTURE —
Transform paintings with pattern
As artists, we are forever in search of unique techniques to use in our creations. We strive to make art that stands out and gets noticed while staying true to what resonates within us. Many of us are attracted to patterning and find sensual joy in the textured surface. Repeating pattern is a powerful way to move the eye. We are also enchanted with ambiguity, and images we do not immediately understand hold more interest for us. Acrylic marbling can do both — add patterning and obscure imagery in our work. When used appropriately, marbling is a magical tool.
Rene Eisenbart has found ways to use marbling in her work while retaining her individual style. She will show you how she combines marbled texture with watercolor painting to create expressive watermedia works. Marbling can be applied under the painting, over the paint or applied later as collage. Then Rene will demonstrate how she creates her marbled patterns. She will introduce you to her process for painting over the marbled texture with watercolor and how she adds it later to balance a piece. You won’t want to miss this demonstration of marbling.
