Stopping by for an update .

Today I've got a couple of pieces to share.

The first is mixed media on  mount board. 

It is larger than I usually work with 12x12 ins.

It is made up of my painted papers, acrylics, coloured pencil and gel sticks.

Then second is a page in my 'Permission to Play ' Journal,

For a long time I have enjoyed watching Mystele Kirkeeng on You Tube.

She works in lots of loose layers of collage and paint and I wanted to try

something similar in my journal.

I started off  with layers of acrylic applied with a palette knife.


I applied more layers of paint using a palette knife and brushes 

 scraping back with a bank card and adding collage.

She looks a little stoic but I loved the process and the finished overall appearance

with all the layers paint.

 Using a palette knife reduces the control you have which results in a looser style 

but I need to try and bring a little more of my own style into the process.

Thanks for stopping by.
