Ok- So I've been busy with the New Year trying out new techniques.
First 2 shots are of preliminary work, from rough sketch book to canvas. Canvases have been primed, painted, tissue papered , painted again, collaged, and painted some more ,,,
Next shot is in the wrong order- it's the finished product. Tryed the encaustic method (do I have that right??)- ie- the whole picture was painted a couple of times with wax. Unfortunately, the original should've been more brightly painted, as the wax really diminishes the color and brightness. Also, I have the clear beeswax pellets. To them, I added a little chunk of the honey colored, as all I had was a tremendous chunk of the honey colored bees wax, which would've taken a long time to melt in my Walmart cheapie crockpot.
Next picture is before the waxing was done.
And the last picture is me- about 27-30 years ago! Yeah, I still look that hot-Really, absolutely, positively, uh-huh.:)
It's a new day, it's a new dawn, it's a New Year, and I'm feeling good. So long as hubby's scans come out with good news on the 12th. Prayers are always welcome:). Have a Blessed Day.
PS- Has anyone tried the wax method? And if so, what pointers can you give me? I had to carve away at the words for them to be more clear. I actually like the effect. Title of post is what's 'written' on the canvas.
PPS- Which angel picture do you like best? The waxed, or unwaxed? Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings, it's all experimental, anyway:)
PPPS- I pledge allegiance to the art work of the united creativities of la- la,la,la,la,la,la,la,la,la!!!... in this New Year!!!
