This is the piece I have been working on this week. Some of the earlier pictures are over in the work in progress gallery.
We are due for snow and all I can think is that I want spring. I want the end to winter… so I guess I’m going to create it in my own space… because I can.
There are now 2 layers of resin. I’m hoping to finish it with a final level of paint and sanding down the sides and the finishing touches by the end of the week.
Things I’ve learnt when doing this
- I really enjoy using pallet knives and love creating depth just using paint and paint mediums
- Putting the leaves on to early before the resin stops moving causes the leaves to move from where I placed them
- I think I’m beginning to enjoy creating the depth purely from the paint and wonder if long term as my skills develop I will end up with more traditional paintings and not mixed media. Although I guess the reason I’m drawn to mixed media is that I get to use all sorts of skill sets as I get bored really easily.
