One Single Wish





These is a mixed media painting,with a couple of progress shots, which I have finished today, entitled One Single Wish.
The canvas was primed and collaged using pressed leaves,handmade papers,oil sticks,paper ephemera and paints,then the image was worked into using many layers of oil,inks and acrylics. This art work measures 8" x 18" on deep sided gallery wrapped ( staple free) block canvas .
It was quite a time consuming project but I knew exactly the effects that I wanted to achieve and it was a great joy to create-and I have to say I am delighted at the result!
I finished the work with a light coating of artist's semi-gloss varnish just before I left my studio tonight,which further enhanced the rich layers of subtle dreamy hues ( I took the photos before varnishing to avoid any glare) and really look forward to hanging the work in all it's glory in my studio tomorrow!
This piece is available for sale ( although I haven't got it listed in my online store just yet( I need some food first it has been a long, but productive day!)- I will add further details as soon as I have uploaded a purchase listing, please click on the photos to enlarge view in the meantime!
