approx. 6.3cm x 8.8cm
Medium: photo paper (up-cycling), gesso, tissue paper, drawing paper, acrylics, glazing medium, colored pencils, watercolors, ink,
This little piece is full of texture and contrast, and was created in many layers and used a lot of different materials. It started out with misprinted photos; I up-cycled them by cutting them in wavy patterns and weaving them together. a coat of gesso was added over the weaved pictures, followed by tissue paper, a bluish acrylic glaze, and another layer of gesso. The tree was drawn next with Pen & Ink.
Layers of watercolors, colored pencil, and cross hatching with pen and ink were added on to finish the piece.
I had a lot of fun with this ACEO (and a few others made with the same technique); I hope you enjoy it.
The piece is original and signed in the front and back. It will be well protected for shipping.
