Black Gesso1Member’s Day Workshop with Audrey Speck: Painting on Black Gesso

Member Audrey Speck instructed the group on this technique. Starting with a black background, a drawing is made with white chalk. Next, we paint the image, making sure not to paint over the chalk outlines. When the paint is completely dry, the last step is to wash away the chalk lines.
