Below is an early version of a painting that has now been re-worked ... and still needs more final touches. This "start" was made with my 6" x 6" stencil Sassy Spray, following directions given in Pat Dews' DVD Designing Great Starts with Texture and Form (Cheap Joe's Art Stuff.)
(Note: I altered my stencil -- only a little -- with Joyce Chen scissors.)
The reason I'm still working on this piece is that I decided it needed more contrast as well as an introduction of complementary color. Since the piece is only 9" x 12" (on stretched canvas) I had at first thought one color family sufficed. But since then I've changed my mind.
Below is another piece created with the same stencil; I've decided that it, too, needs more development. I'm still mulling over what to do ...
Sassy Spray looks like this before it gets scissor-altered --
