I was at my local craft store shopping for the art classes i am teaching when i came across these large canvases! At 30″ x 48″ they were a steal for their size so i grabbed two and was going to figure out what to do with them later. Well later had finally arrived, the weekend before Ramadan began I decided on making something for my parents to give to them for Eid. I wanted to get this project complete before the first day of Ramadan, and with that quickly approaching, i couldn’t think of a better time.
I was simultaneously working on the second canvas to to go with the one i documented. Alhamdullilah I am quite satisfied with it so far. The multiple layers of color covered in the two washes gives a beautiful marbleized finish. The washes really helped mute the bright colors and make them cohesive, but i can’t say that this project is complete just yet.
I just need to incorporate some calligraphy. I know Kufic script will go very well with these lines, I’m just not to sure of where to place it. I’ve taken pictures of the canvases and tried to digitally alter them before i put it down in paint. I’m thinking about going with the above. What do you all think? Yay or Nay?
