Fit As a Violin #2
To achieve the interesting distressed background I started by covering the canvas with a thick layer of acrylic paint. Once the paint was tacky I layered crumpled tissue paper. Once the background was covered with tissue paper I began to drip and splatter a paint that was diluted with water. I kept applying paint until I was satisfied. In some areas I used a razor to distress the painted tissue paper, thus exposing the based layer of paint.
