This portrait is a mixture of techniques which were used organically with not too much planing.When the background was glued down I realised that this lady was a very noble person and the shape of the collaged ears of wheat reminded me of wings so the title came as an obvious choice…
I continue my new series of mixed media portraits and this one is done with collage, pastels and acrylic paint on watercolour paper.
I just love using collage to add texture to a painting.Collage gives you so much inspiration for colours . This was inspired by a copyright free photo of a gorgeous woman !
I enjoyed using my mixed media stash to create this portrait on strong paper. It is always with great pleasure to start with no particular plan and end up with a a triking result!
This lovely fountain is covered with winter flowers at the moment … a real treat for the eyes. This old village is full of charming little corners to be discovered…There is always plenty of inspiration for paintings…
This view can be glimpsed in between old houses and trees walking along the main street in Le Cannet. My point of focus is the terracotta pot which invites the eye to go beyond to discover a sliver of the sea in the background. Still part of my ongoing series about Le Cannet done in watercolour.
With the new year let’s have a look at the bigger picture and why not enjoy the view of Le Cannet with its simple church nested in glorious lush vegetation.
