Storms Don't Last for Ever for Stencil Girls Voices

Thanks for stopping by! Today, we are making art with Mary Beth Shaw's Private Collection 19.1.

Kim Kendell's Storms Don't Last Forever

The advice of Kim's artwork is a hope. The colors are rich yet subdued over some paper collaged in the background, while the white marks offer a pathway for the eyes.

Kim writes: "I took inspiration from the 9 x 12 and 6 x 6 stencils, when I opened my package it screamed Australian indigenous art to me, I have used aspects of Australian indigenous art in the design as well as collage and many layers of paint and colour that have been removed with a wet wipe then reapplied."

Take a look in different portions of the painting and see what you spy! Can you see where the large and small stencils from the February 2019 StencilClub stencils were incorporated?

Kim created this piece using the following products:
A4 chipboard sheet
Black Gesso
Seth Apter Paper Artsy paints in, Terra Cotta, Smoked Paprika, Mahogany, and Green Patina (semi-opaque)  
Dina Wakely Olive and Vivid Metallic paint in Pearl White
Old book papers 
Aquarelle pencil in black-smudged with water to highlight the various areas.
