More Art Work

Can you hear the Mermaid Singing?

Another piece from the class Magical Mythical Making which inspired me to paint the following creatures:  Goddesses, fairies, mermaids and unicorns.
This mermaid is painted on a piece of plywood, about 24 x 36 inches which will include an ornate frame of gold once done.

 The piece is painted with watercolors and acrylics and used gold  mica chips for the scales.

Part of the course is to paint in a journal.  We used Chagall for our inspiration.  He was criticized for his lack of realism.  Thank goodness he did not change or we would not have his quirky paintiings to inspire us.

As a painter he used strange images in his painting,
like a bird underwater or flying horse or buildings totally out of context. 

This is part of the 21 Secrets Class.

Collage Paint and Soul
First you glue all types of pictures and tissue paper to the background.
After looking at this for awhile I decided I did not like those colors at all.

Here is the finished piece titled
The Land of Make Believe.
I will be moving on to another class but just love this technique.
