in love with texture....

These three images are closeups of the angel pictured below. I really love all the texture in this painting and thought you might like to see it too. Many layers go into a painting like this....collage papers, layers of acrylic paints, (then I sand the painting to let some of the color from the collage papers show through) a layer gloss varnish, crackle medium, a raw umber wash, then I seal it with two layers of matte varnish. All these steps are worth the end result :)

Wishing you all a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!!!


  1. I love how you use texture in your original and how it carries through in the prints.


  2. Hey, Texture just called me and he says he loves you too.

    Beautiful work. Thanks for the up close view.
