Mixed Media 'Tapestry'
This is a picture of an 11" x 14" mixed media piece that I recently created. I have done a smaller one in the past but I thought it would look interesting in a larger format. This particular piece is the same size as the one students will be working on in November in a mixed media workshop. I normally work exclusively in coloured pencil, in a realistic style, with lots of detail. This feels more like instant gratification as it didn't take several days to complete. I used fluid acrylics and gesso for the base and the 'threads' of the tapestry are drawn in with coloured pencils. To learn about my classes and to see a schedule for 2008 please see my website.
