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.
