Thought to show you these step by step pics. Above: Blank canvas!
Step one: papers on as a background. I use Golden medium to glue/ shield them or just any collage/decoupage glue.
Then: layers of acrylic paint, making sure the background is still visible. I use a cloth or spunge too. This is fun!
Image forming up…. using an oily cohl crayon for sketching. It can be rubbed off easily with a wet cloth or a rubber, because of the already lack-glued paper.
Then some more painting with acrylics and/or pen´s called molotow. They come in many colors and sizes and are seriously cool (pic above). I used them for the tree and the bird.
Finished piece: “Wild nature – Quiet heart” (Comission work)
“In the middle of the wildest nature you may find a quiet heart”.
Also: today I am part of the guest-post series “Changing places” over at Dixon Hill! Go visit Helen Agarval´s beauty-filled blog (she´s an awesome photographer!) and read the post about cafés here.
