In­tro­duc­ing tex­ture to the back­ground

ImagineFX - - Traditional Artist -

To con­trast the smooth starfield, I tex­ture my back­ground with thick im­pasto. Lots of thick or “short” paint over a dry sur­face re­sults in in­ter­est­ing, sharp-edged sep­a­ra­tions of the ap­plied paint globs. In ad­di­tion to brushes, a pal­ette knife is par­tic­u­larly good for ap­ply­ing th­ese tex­tures.
