School Days / Koulussa

Tämä poika ei välitä koulusta ja uhkaa opettaa luokalle muutamia helppoja lauseita. Ihan ei käy ilmi, tarkoittaako hän vieraita kieliä - vai jotakin muuta...

Well, someone is clearly not happy to be at school:

Mind your language, son!

I tried something new again this week, texture paste. You can see it on the background. I worked it through two stencils, then painted and rubbed the higher parts with some darker color. This was my first time using it. There is some texture, for sure, but not as much as I imagined there would be. Perhaps using gesso would do the same thing? Opinions, anyone?

entering this into:
Take a Word: School days
Try it on Tuesday: try something new
