Painting: The Great Gathering
I just completed painting “The Great Gathering,” which is now available for purchase on my online store. This piece of art was such a pleasure to work on. The creative process is quite involved and very rewarding.
This 30 x 30 in (76 x 76 cm) piece of art features 64 small original watercolour paintings mounted on birch panel. The board was first sanded and sealed. I chose black and dark grey in layers and applied crackle medium to add a bit of texture.
These were arranged and rearranged many times until the composition felt just right. Each little watercolour adhered with a gel medium and then three coats of a glossy pouring medium were applied to each piece. I finished it with a couple of coats of satin varnish and glued on small matte beads for embellishment.
p.s. There are 125 beads in all!
