Castle Makers and Stamping
In Castle makers, the key to this painting was using a hand made stamp. I cut this out off a Speedball printing block. I painted the water and t-shirt shapes in and quickly stamped back and forth between the two shapes before they were dry. I loved the atmospheric quality it created. Then I painted on the stamp in related colors and used it to stamp in their braids and t-shirts. I love the freshness and gestural brushstrokes.
