Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

Background Technique #1

Hello Art Makers....

I have been getting some questions regarding some of my background techniques.
With that I will be doing a video series of some different techniques, this being the first. Some that I have learned along the way and some of my own creation and experimentation.

I hope you find this useful and add your own spin on it.
Try layering the paint from light to dark and dark to light.

 I would start out by using colors that play well together.
So you don't get the muck and mire.

A good choice is to stay in the same color group. 
Dark Red
Med Red
Light Red
