Femme de feu VIII final... Opening another door!

I completed my experiment on a new textural effect with raw cotton this morning...

Applying textures with a 4 inch roller requires some "getting used to" as every move is finite!  A number of application ideas came to mind after this experiment... in support of higher contrasts between mid tones and light tones.

Note to self: "This avenue may be my salvation as I run out of raw cotton/linen four to five years down the line... In a nutshell, when it comes to textures, I want more than the usual painting knife effects on a textured background with either raw or primed canvas. This new technique goes in line with my idea about deconstruction... high risk/high payback!"
