Back to more mixed media art created at The Tin Shop in Breckenridge, Colorado. Can you tell it was a very productive stay? A handful more posts and I will have all the images and works-in-progress shots finally online. Then maybe I can show you what I’ve been doing since I returned! 🙂 For today I am going to show you a set of artwork in different stages from start to finish. For some reason I have a lot more progression images for these than many of the others. I’m alternating which piece I show you in each different stage, all three of the finished pieces are shown above. These were created on 11×14 flat wood panels. The first step was applying a thin layer of grout and troweling designs on each panel.
After that it was paint, paint, paint and more paint! The following are images of 10 of the different stages these pieces went through, I suspect there were a few more that I didn’t document but this will give you a good idea of the process.
Most layers were thinned acrylic, a few layers were slightly thicker. They all added up to a rich depth of layered color. Just for fun I thought I would take a photo of the pieces hanging in a home-type setting (actually this is in Sugar Creek Art Center) to give you an idea how they might look.
Now close your eyes and picture them in YOUR home. 😉
Until next time!
