Candy Cane Reflection

Two candy canes reflected in a mirror with a red background form a heart to celebrate the holidays. Kim Klassen's 'and then some' texture was added several times with two of the textures enhanced with Snap Art 2 to create an Impasto painting technique popular with the Rembrandt, Titian and the French Impressionists as well as Vincent Van Gogh. With this technique, the paint is laid on the canvas or parts of the canvas very thickly, usually thick enough for painting-knife or brush strokes to show.Source Lastly, some of the Impasto texture was brushed away from the candy canes.

Sharing with Texture Tuesday.

I love the youthful feel of candy canes, especially when they are creating hearts! I did not catch that is was on a mirror until I read it. How fun!
