Doors are things you open when you want to pass through and close when you want to keep something out … or in. But symbolically, doors represent a lot more than that: transition, change, and opportunities that await us on the other side. What does this door represent to you?
Today we’re going to use layers to build depth of color and texture in this old stone wall and red door painting. Let yourself get lost in the layers and enjoy how each one changes the last as the textures build. Have patience and enjoy!
