Mixed Media, Acrylic and Watercolor Painting, and a tiny bit of Art Quilting
Tuesday, May 25, 2010
I started the background on this painting over a month ago. I didn't care too much for the coloring so I set it aside. Yesterday, I painted over the background several times and finally got a color I liked. As I did in the previous post, I traced a black and white picture of a flower from a Dover clip art book, and adhered it to the substrate (wood). After painting the flower and adding embellishments of paint, stickers, and tape, I sat it aside to dry for a few hours. I then covered it with the leveling gel and got the result I wanted with no puckering of the paper. This photo was taken before the gel, because it is hard to photograph with the gel because of the glare. I'm happy with the result.
