|ACRYLIC INK DRAWING ON COLLAGED SURFACE|
|THE CLAN #4 FINISHED|
So, here is the finished painting. I started out using watercolor but there was too much acrylic on the tissue paper so I wasn't getting much color sticking. I switched to liquid acrylic. Some of the colors are kind of intense and a little unusual. The greens are amazingly bright, so I had to add a neutralizing color. I kept to a basic orange/green palette because it was not something I usually work with.
I feel I am working towards a breakthrough but not there yet. I was disappointed that the original collage barely impacts the color . It's all a learning process. You have to see what happens to understand it. There are always surprises, which is part of the fun!
I have my idea for the next painting. I just received my copy of the CCP new Anne Bagby DVD. I am going to attempt the process she used in the video and apply it to this series. I just spent $$$$ for the Sunday New York Times to get some great fonts.
I received my book from Blurb yesterday! Love how professional it looks! Right now Blurb is offering $10 off any order. If you have been wanting to order a book from them, now is the time. Use the promo code below to get your discount.
