Productive week of painting....
Good evening everyone...
I had a sort of productive week with painting....I was able to finish off a large piece that I had started a while back, and I also completed a smaller mixed media painting today.
The Indian Head Dress idea had been floating around in my head for quite awhile, and finally came to fruition once I put some colourful layers on a canvas, and thought what now! So I whipped out a lead pencil and did a quick sketch of that idea of an Indian Head Dress, and thought, why put something like it onto the canvas...and so, below, is the final masterpiece ;) The more I look at it, the more I like it. I have used acrylic paints, pastels, scrapbooking papers, velvet paper, beads, recycled book pages and gesso. It measures 16 x 20 inches.
This piece below titled 'When Magic Happens' measures 30 x 30 inch and I have used acrylic paints, paper, glitter and beads. I had previously made one almost identical for a client but on a 24 x 36 inch canvas...I just love these colours!
