Mixed Media Canvases Continued
Here are a few more mixed media works in progress.
This is the background that I created at the Anything Art Meeting on Monday.
This is gesso mixed with acrylic paint on a gallery-mounted canvas, about 12 x 12 inches. I scratched into the wet gesso with a straw and my finger.
Here is what I added to a previously prepared background made from tissue and catalog pages on canvas. It is not quite finished. It is a color wheel flower.
Astute followers of this blog may recognize that I took a watercolor practice page and cut it up to make the flower. I needed more shades, so I applied some more watercolor paint to paper and used it, too.
This is a watercolor study that I did, actually copying a painting I saw in an online Raleigh art gallery. I first thought of painting the elements to use in a mixed-media collage. Then I liked the painting and decided to keep it whole and finish it. I have added some tissue paper collage to the watercolor painting. Needs a little more work to be finished.
