Today I played on a canvas, let it speak for itself, I called it Beauty and the beast: The last days I was in blue mood (it might be the weather, it was storming), I used a lot that dark blue acrylic, and as there was some more on my palette I thought I am going to spread it with a Brayer on a canvas. Now I had stripe on a canvas, so I felt like playing further. First with a string and some tissue paper to create some texture. I applied them with a mixture of string gel and acrylic. That seemed a great contrast between the 2 sides, now only to blend them together, so I decided to use some acrylic ink and to mist it with water. It was just perfect for the time of the year. There was something dark going on and some light, like the days are getting shorter, the darkness is trying to over win and like the first morning frosts are biting into the last flowers. And so my painting continued. The frost became a beast with pots only present. And a rose become the last flower of the summer, I used texture paste. And I coloured it with aquarelle. I added some shadows to my pots as well. Finally I splattered with ecoline over my painting. Some details for the curious eyes:
I would like to add a credit to Tracy Weinzapfel, whose Mixed media monday’s are very inspiring, I painted my canvas after watching “live, love, laugh” part, why don’t you jump over and check it out!
