peaks n' valleys...
This is the first post in several weeks for me...I have spent this time working with mediums-heavy gloss, modeling paste, matte medium, and more. It was quite a bit more of a challenge than I even knew...I have done many "pieces," but I wouldn't call them paintings-yet.
Golden Acrylics sent me some samples to try of their new "Open" acrylic line of paint, and I will have comments soon.
This piece is a very different style for me-it is on canvas 16"x20" with impasto textural effects that the monitor isn't really able to completely show.
I will keep working on all the new artwork, and hopefully they will be posted soon.

Julianne, this is beautiful and very different for you. I love it, though. I don't know if it is because I have Italy on my mind or what, but this looks very Italian to me. The colors and the composition are perfect. I particularly love the gold and purples which are pulled together with that soft green.ReplyDelete
Truly wonderful work!
Thank you, Kim! I just now titled and wrote an "update" of sorts about what I have been working on, and where this piece fits in on my latest endeavors. Talk about a style shift! I just hope I find a place in my latest search for "texture, mixed media, and layering" within my paintings.ReplyDelete
Beautiful colors in this one, Julianne, and I'm a big fan of the texture.ReplyDelete
