This is a miniature that I created before Thanksgiving. However, with the holiday I just couldn’t manage to get it posted. That and the fact that my husband was working at my desk! I had applied a layer of black acrylic mixed with matte medium. I liked it but it was dark. Once it had dried I mixed a few bright colors on a piece of wax paper and then pressed/swirled it onto the surface. I let that layer dry and then did some coloring over the textured surface with red, yellow and white crayons. The last step was to apply a thin layer of glass bead medium. I’m thinking I didn’t need that last step but I am happy with the result. It looks like a mass of beautiful blooms to me. What do you see?
I just played to create this one. I started with a thin layer of gesso. I painted onto the ends with blue and orange watercolor and let the paint run towards the center. I was a bit dull so I started peeling dried matte medium from my work table and gluing it down! I liked the color and texture. I accentuated it by painted over it and outlining parts of the shapes that were appearing. I took some green acrylic and painted in the white areas as they were too stark. I like the final result.
