Cypress Swamp

16x20. I double primed the canvas with white gesso tinted with portrait pink. Then had a little fun with a stencil. Painted in oil.


Iā€™m guessing but is that the shape of Alabama?

Wonderful. How did you make that stencil?

I made the stencil by using a piece of the hard plastic film found in packs of canvases. The think plastic sheet that protects the canvas on top. I took that and then just put it over my atlas and traced it. Cut it out and made a hard stencil. Then used that to trace as many as I needed onto contact paper.
