Started a new mixed media piece. This is still at the early stages with a few washes of thin acrylic paint. I tend to build up the colours and the next stage is adding thicker paint to create more depth. After that soft pastels and collage. I look forward to posting the finished artwork.
Spent the other morning working on this over at the lovely Elizabeth Armstrong’s studio. Always generous with her time and knowledge she explained to me how to steam leaves on paper to create a print. So I when I got home I gave it a try with a degree of success. Perhaps I need to be a little more patient in future and wait longer. I will try again as I think these papers would make lovely backgrounds for Lino prints and terrific bound together as an artist book.
