Nature as my canvas

abstract dot art on wood by Tessa Smits

I love to use natural materials to paint on. I started with painting on sea stones but now I try out more rough (and more difficult) materials like this piece of wood. Before I start to paint I always make sure that the surface is as smooth as possible. So in this case I sanded the wood. Then I follow the natural pattern of the material, respecting the curves and lines on this piece of wood. Love how this one worked out.
