I have been a terrible blogger this week...got caught up in a large mixed media painting that I'm not ready to share yet, so thought I better make something to share :D
I made this 8x8 canvas a few weeks ago..but ruined it by picking up my silver paint instead of iridescent medium, which obliterated all the yummy colours that had been the background :/
So out came the gesso today...and started again...
The new challenge over at The Game is to create something with an image of some one sleeping. I can't believe I didn't have such an image in my massive stash, so I drew my own.
and started adding paint...
I normally start with a busy background, but this time just worked onto the white textured surface...
in primary colours, with a dry brush.
Then added some of my fav viridian green...and edged with a bit of black.
I like her...not sure if she is sleeping or dead, but I do like the simplistic "scruffy" style to this painting.
I am calling this piece "Sweet Dreams", and it is my entry for this weeks "A Piece a Week"
Enjoy :D XXX
