As the Crow Flies
My experiments continue! As I mentioned in my last post, I've been playing with textures. This painting was created on a stretched canvas. What I liked about the canvas was that it had been painted on before--many times. It was a canvas that I experimented on and then just painted over again and again. Eventually layers of texture built up. I added some tissue paper, some gel medium, several more layers of paint with a final couple of layers of glaze. Finally, I painted the silhouette of the crow. I really like how the color and textures work together. The original mixed media painting was 11x14 inches. Fine art prints on either canvas or paper are available for purchase here.
