I'd like to find a way to paint/create the texture in this photo.
I have access to oil pint, acrylics, soft pastels, moulding paste (impasto) and more.
I was thinking to use several layers. Each layer could use a different approach, for example, one layer acrylic, another pencil, one impasto, another pastel.
I was also thinking of using different kinds of fabric or wire mesh as a 'wet stamp' -- perhaps in different tonal values and colours.
