Day 10 Mixed Media Explorations - Paint Markers

This painting is on acrylic paper which I stretched before use, but it still buckles when a lot of water is used.  I think I prefer either canvas or watercolor paper.

I started by applying some scrim and then I continued with layers of paint.  I finished with some writing using an oil-based marker, Uni-Paint with a medium nib. I love the bold marks it makes.

I then put a light wash over part of the painting, to unify the elements.

Love it! How big is this piece, Rolina? I love your use of line and the texture of this piece. Your work is so unique!

Rolina said...

Thanks Sandy, this piece is 7x7 inches - my intention to stay within 6x6 inches has missed the mark on many days. Some have been as large as 12x12!

I love your vibrant colors. I have a feeling it took guts to then wash over them in places. Nice!

Rolina said...

Thanks Sheila, Cagley Art and Doris. Yes it can be quite terrifying, although sometimes I hear myself cackling, lol!

Great piece. I'm learning a lot through you experiments too.

Thanks April, this intense way of working (who needs sleep anyway?) really does seem to encourage advancements.
