Progression

My artwork has many many layers. 
They take a lot of time, but are  a lot of fun to make. 
I always think progression is fun to look at... 
so, here is the progression of a painting.
I start out with a textured canvas this one has stucco and gesso on it. 
I textured it several days before.
Starting the sketch
Blending the oil pastels with my fingers..
Finished Piece! 
"What Happens In Fall" 
Another "Tree-Girl", shedding her leaves in the wind.
Mixed Media, on canvas, 16x20.

The original, as well as prints are now available in the shop.

  2. Wow!!! It's beautiful! I love this post... And I love birch trees sooo much!
    Years ago I had a little art-supplies shop and so I had the possibility to use a lot of stuff I was selling...
    I remeber I was in love with stucco&gesso and I was used to use it everywhere... ;)
    I don't use pencils since years, but this reminds me nice moments...
    Your post makes my hands quiver :)
    Thank you for sharing...
    Have a bright day Rachael

  3. I love your paintings, and I think the layered, textured quality are my favorite things about them. I think layering things in art makes it feel more human.

  9. For textured paintings have you ever added flour to your paint? I have a painter friend that suggested that to me one time. I thought it was really neat.
