Oh how I love to experiment! So I’ve been indulging myself lately. In particular, trying out my acrylic mediums in new ways, inspired by, at the moment, Lisa Cyr, mixed media artist/teacher whose on line course, “Within the Layers: Inspirational Mixed Media Techniques” I’m taking through Artistsnetworkuniversity.com Lisa is the author of two books, Art Revolution and Experimental Painting.
Above are some beginnings on small canvases which give me a chance to try out ideas without spending a lot of time on each one. I’m going for a kind of antique patina and organic feel, maybe even buried treasure reclaimed by the earth and time.
I love the fossil-y look created here with a bit of decalcomanie to add interest.
The above two pieces were developed with further glazes after the initial ones in the first picture. I felt like an archeologist uncovering treasured remains!
