One of the comments I hear from friends all the time, is that they would have loved to have seen how a piece was created and why I chose to do what I did. This blog will mainly serve the purpose to show what I have been working on and give you sneak peeks of paintings and artwork before they are completed and ready for sale.
Below is a piece I have been working on for a while. I still have a lot of detailing to complete, but you can see from the progression where I started and maybe where I am going - though most of the time, I don't even know that!
After painting a pretty blue background, I began laying out and working with all the found metal and such and creating a pattern...
After creating a design, I pulled all the metal off and painted the background design.
While the paint was still wet, I began reapplying the metal and adhering it as needed.
Now that everything is adhered, and after it dries for a day or two, it will be time for detailing. Lots and lots of detailing!
