This is the final piece in "Textural Abstracts" Series.
It is on heavy, quality paper 18"x24." Gesso on both sides and left to dry.
Then i sanded the side I would paint. The first layer was gold, Yellow Ochre, Buff white, interference Gold, Iridescent pearl.
I left a heavy layer of those acrylic colors, and let it dry. I lightly sanded the entire piece, before I taped off the sections I would paint. A light dry brush application of Burnt Umber , followed by Crimson, pale olive green, always sanding after applying, so as to sand it slightly wet.
I added a string gel medium with black acrylic and fluid interference green to texture and detail the edges. Celtic symbols are throughout the painting, glazes under them and then cover them....
Finished with a UV protective gloss varnish.

  1. Julianne,

    This is so warm and inviting. I really love how you are doing these works and feel sad this is the final piece in this series. It is truly beautiful. I also appreciate your description of how it is done...a lot of subtle detail which shows.

    I love it!

  2. Thank you Kim...always a pleasure having you stop by and give your thoughts.
