I have been working on this painting on and off for a long time. You can probably tell that by all the layers and texture. I just couldn’t get it to where I liked it. I am still not that thrilled with it but I’ve decided to let it be finished. This painting is on a canvas and is 11 x 14 inches.
There’s a lot of different media in this one. I started with collage which can’t even be seen anymore. Some of the layers were created by applying molding paste with a palette knife. The little circles were added using a stencil and molding paste. I used acrylics, gelatos, watercolor crayons, gouache, colored pencils, charcoal pencil, posca paint marker and gel pen. Could be more but I can’t remember since I have been working on it for so long.
I’m hoping to get some time in over the holiday weekend to start a new larger painting. I’m also looking forward to working in a new journal I recently started which is inspired by Karen O’Brien’s Imaginary Characters book.
