I finally finished my third big blooms painting! I have been working on it for some time because I decided to add collage papers to it instead of pastels as I did for my first and second large flower paintings.
Below are progress photos of my acrylic painting before collage:
Once I was somewhat pleased with my painting, I added collage papers that I did on the Gelli plate previously. I cut them out of my deli printed papers and glued them over my painted flowers with Liquitex gloss medium, paying attention to lights and darks.
On the second one above, I painted over some of the gelli prints that I added to the vase and the background to help blend the colors. Below is a close-up on the collage at two different stages:
And below is my finishing touches – the one on the right is the completed painting:
You may be wondering what the purple flower is? Well, I kind of made it up! I liked the color combination! Lol!
Happy Creating! 🙂
