This is my latest finished piece. It is really difficult to get a photo that truly captures this one for some reason. I began this piece a while back and posted the background. It started out as autumn colored stripes, later on I added leaves. For the finished piece I added a transfer of a fox image, muted the entire piece to blend it together, and then went over the entire thing with a metallic bronze finish. Below are a few images.
Below is a photo of my latest painting. It is a mixed media piece using acrylic, watercolor, and gel medium. This was my first time doing transfers. I used an original painting of a butterfly which I did last year and a cool old piece of wallpaper. I made color copies of the originals and then used the gel medium and a brayer to put the images onto the canvas. After I got everything transferred I watered down some acrylic paint to do a wash of sorts. Then, I decided to take some watercolors and create a sun. I used the leftover watercolor from the sun, watered it down to a very thin consistency and did a light wash over the existing green wash in a graded brightness…going from brighter to lighter from top to bottom. After that was finished, my final step was to take a pre-cut sheet of circles/bubbles and used a sponge brush with some thinned down off white acrylic to create the top layer. Once the painting was dry, I took it into the alley and used a matte clear coat Krylon spray to seal it all in.
