Here is the third of my paintings done on the 12x12x1 cradled wood panels. It is a mixed media portrait painting. I used acid free paper and thin acrylic washes. I then over painted it using oil paint, oil sticks and cold wax. The oil sticks are new for me and so far I just LOVE them!! It is like coloring for old people. They blend easily and dry quickly too. I did not use any brushes with the oil so there was easy clean up. Since I covered the under painting with oil I was able to add the cold wax on later layers. She reminds me of Helena Bonham-Carter but I did not use her as a reference photo. We are huge Helena fans here so maybe it just came through in the painting. Anyway, I decided to name her Sylvia.
I created a page on my website for these smaller works. Because they are so small I am able to sell them at a pretty good price.
