Sampling on a stretched Canvas
Sampling is a technique for transferring printed photos using wet, white paint. It is demonstrated on a canvas as a B/W base for a coloured painting.
How to do it
Briefly about sampling (which has several meanings): A transfer technique in visual arts, where photography and painting are combined. Note that the image will be mirrored when transferred.
Print out a B/W portrait or similar onto white copy paper (the greater the constrast, the better the result). NB: Certain printers print black with a green sheen.
Apply a thick coat of white acrylic paint; Art School.
Place the print face down into the wet paint. Smooth the print and leave to dry.
With patience and caution remove the print from the canvas. Use a bit of water to rub off the paper bit by bit until the print on the canvas appears. Leave to dry.
Painting the canvas. If you want a light color, as in this example, mix the white paint according to your taste with a few drops of each of the colours - ocher, red and brown.
When dry, varnish the finished painting for a shiny surface.
