Mixed Media on Canvas
Jacquard Lumieres, beeswax paints, colored pencil, gel medium, acrylics, book pages, decorative papers, and mica powders.
There are layers and layers and layers of colors and metallic shimmer on this piece. It glows in the right light... I wish I had a camera capable of capturing that. Right now I am still trying to get the scanner to cooperate and correctly scan the pink/peachy skin tones I paint. I don't like the way the edges of the book papers intersect her face, next time I paint something like this I will plan ahead so I don't have funky lines and ruffles in important places. I do like the overall color scheme and the effect of the color glazing on the overall piece, its very whimsical.
