Patterned background

Yesterday I worked on the background of my sister’s portrait.   I made two stamps out of an eraser.  I used a paintbrush to apply paint to the stamp and created a pattern.

  2. Great idea to use erasers to make stamps. I want to make a patterned background for an oil painting and I will consider this option.
