As I continued working on my collage that I started two days ago, a sweet garden fairy has started to flutter to life on my canvas. I am reminded of the fairies of one of my favorite artists, Cicely Mary Barker – be sure to look at her fairies on Pinterest if you aren’t familiar with her art!
Today, I painted the background with Golden Fluid acrylics in Titan Buff as this creates a cohesiveness to my background.
I added Liquitex Basics acrylic paint in Raw Umber. I water down the paint and add it in layers, removing much of the paint with an old rag until I’m satisfied with the appearance. I like how this ages my piece.
I will be adding the finishing touches soon and plan to post my completed collage on Tuesday, Feb 9th.
Flower Fairy Trivia: Cicely Mary Barker used real children as her models for the Fairies and her flower pictures are botanically accurate.
Enjoy your Sunday! 🙂
