Mixed Media Monday - On the Beach
Rosie is the guest host this week on Mixed Media Monday and she has chosen "on the beach" as her challenge prompt. This follows on so nicely from "mermaids" last week, that I decided to do a companion painting for the mermaid piece. This time I decided to have a more positive story for my painting, since my "forbidden love" was a little sad. So here we have endless love between the man and woman, and their two little sailor boys. This is done on a 6 x 6 inch, or 15x15 cm canvas using collage elements, lots of layers of acrylic glazes and tissue paper, molding paste etc. for texture. Thanks for a fun challenge, Rosie!
