In the Studio - New Mixed Media Work

by 1 May 09, 2013

IMG_0012 {in the city - (work in progress)} Last April, you might remember that I took a 3 day painting course at the Makerie with Flora Bowley. This started a whole new path for my art and for my return to sketching in my sketchbooks. I started a sketchbook during that class which is now filled with wonderful ideas for mixed media pieces. This is the first of a batch that I am creating on small art board panels (incidently, I learned about the panels from my friend Marisa as she does most of her work on them) They are a perfect option for me, as I can complete a piece in one sitting and feel a true sense of accomplishment. IMG_0013 I used three tools to create this piece: 4x4 art board panel, xs pitt pen and acrylic paint. I also limited my color palette to 4 colors as you can see in the photo and white with iridescent silver for accent. IMG_0015 The piece now needs to be finished with matte medium and it will be ready for cards, postcards, prints etc. Thanks for popping by today for a quick glimpse into my studio. Have a great day everyone.
