    you should mention how they are made with dust!

    • i wasn’t exactly sure what that meant when i read it, i guess she uses the dust and seals it and then paints over? maybe she can clarify!

    alison- thanks for sharing your work. Love the large scale and chiaroscuro of your pieces. Where did you learn to disegnare/”draw”. Che bellezza!

  • The backgrounds of these paintings are made from the dust of the subject’s home. It’s literally glued onto the canvas and sealed with a fixative. I add more dust with acrylic medium to create the shadows. http://www.allisoncortson.com Thanks!

    beautiful and highly original pieces! Congratulations
