Mixed Media Piece
A piece of cardboard with a coat of gesso. It was an old piece that had some glue on it.
Acrylic turquoise mixed with blue and some yellow.
Assembling elements from supermarket ads and Ikea catalogue and something I saved from a Coulommier cheese. 🙂
I could only find half of a potted plant so I created the other half of it with modelling paste.
Painted the plant and dabbed on some white acrylic where the blue was showing through the tablecloth too much. Toned down the white paper of the texts with watered down acrylic.
Poured glue on, spread with spalter, then applied tissue paper. Smoothed it somewhat, but the paper is fragile and tears if messed with too much. Waited for it to dry.
Glued the tissue paper edges to the back. Used some Caran d’Ache watercolour crayons to intensify the blue, define some shapes and shadows. Added a bit of gold acrylic.
