Tapestry Poppies


"Tapestry Poppies", is a acrylic/mixed media painting on a 24" x 24" x 1.5" stretched canvas. These started as my interested in a dirty pour/swipe technique, but wanting to take it further. I have down a number of these, but added more manipulation of the paints to create my effects.

I started a blog, and unfortunately, I messed that up today and hope to get that back up and running. I explained this piece from start to finish.
I began with a dirty pour/swipe, in three sections, the third section was after the first two dried. I then planned the mass and linear painting using two of the coloration used prior (bronze and orange. Decided to go with poppy flower which is a favorite of mine and a tapestry look. I used collage to create the poppies and gold linear work.
Followed up with three layers of glaze sanding in between each.
This is a lot of color for me, but it has some magic in the patterns and how they compliment.

Even if you are not planning on purchasing a print, check out the print option and play with it. It costs nothing to play and you can even play with wall colors. It is a fabulous tool. Enjoy

Enjoy, Nancy

I plan to do a figurative piece shortly using this method.
