I create a lot of art. "Lots and lots of them." - Raymond Babbit
It's actually pretty unusual for me to get attached to a piece but well, here's one of them and once again, it didn't turn out as I expected. I wasn't patient enough to mix the color of blue I was imagining but who cares. This is great! Live & learn from our happy accidents.
It's painted on a heavyweight Indian handmade watercolor paper. The paper has great texture which is why I like to use it.(Can you see the face?)
Super bright artist grade acrylic paint colors like Cadmium Red Deep, Cadmium Orange, Diarylide Yellow, Cerulean Blue Deep and Pthalo Blue (RS) from Golden make this piece just POP!
By playing around with the paint, I managed to create this three dimensional effect that looks like some kind of old stone carving.
This piece makes me very happy. If I can find a good way to reproduce it, I will consider selling the original.
