To achieve this combination of styles, I first painted the cave drawing (from Lascaux) and the cinder block wall. Like all my work, it is painted in acrylic on silk. I then covered parts of the cave painting with masking tape. Everything under the tape would be visible in the final painting. After taping, I covered the entire surface with gesso and then painted the graffiti. When I removed the masking tape, the cave drawing was revealed. To complete the illusion and add depth, I added a shadow and highlight to all these cut-outs. So, two paintings for the price of one. What a deal.
Although I have my "secret" painting techniques, if you read this entire website carefully, you will learn a great deal about my techniques. I hope you bookmark and return often. Much love.
