Been busy painting and creating mixed media pieces.
This first one below was done on a 16 by 20 canvas board
that I've had for awhile.
I initially covered it with old dress pattern tissue paper.
Then I decided to cover it with torn music sheets.
After that I added watercolor washes.
It all bubbled up when it was dry,
so I ironed it.
Yes, you heard right,
I ironed it flat.
It worked pretty good.
Then I used more watercolor,
and watercolor pencils
I don't have a title for this one yet,
it is not finished....
feels like it still needs some tweaking a bit....
maybe a quote or some flowers or
some background work or......?
The piece below is like a forest floor,
with many layers....
and is done on watercolor paper.
First I gessoed the paper to give it texture.
I used watercolor, acrylics, collage,
oil pastels, stamps, and stencils.
To add texture I put crumbled up saran wrap
on the wet watercolor layer.
I put plexiglass glass on top of that,
with weights (many books) on top of the whole thing...
until it was dry.
Gives a great look!
I added some runs to the top of this, as I have seen that done
in many works of art and love the look.
No title for this one either...not yet.
Do you find it hard to know when a piece is finished?
Do you have a difficult time giving your art titles?
Savor the Day!
