You have seen this little toucan before in Yupo paper. (I have become quite fond of him!). This time he is on 11 x 14 wrapped canvas with an acrylic painted background. He himself is made of hand-acrylic painted torn papers. When I think he is done, he'll be varnished.
This was my day one assignment (apples).
Again the background is acrylic (splattered) although this time on canvas board (11 x 14). If you could look closer you could see we use music paper, hand written notes, newspapers, rice papers, etc.
Most of Day one was spent preparing these papers! Printing, stamping, splattering, and using layer upon layer of analogous colors.
The subject is painted first and then the papers added afterwards.
This is one of Elizabeth's paintings...part of a show called The Ark which will showcase 50 of her paintings in April.
(More on that later.)
Her paintings are on wood and are about 3 x 4' .
Day 3 is on Sunday although I only stay for the morning as the Hawthorne Park Art show will be tomorrow afternoon.
If you are in the Leesburg area be sure to drop in. I'll have 5 pieces in the show...1-4. Hawthorne Park is 3 miles south of Leesburg. We had advertising in the Orlando Sentinel today.
