I had been wanting to try some metallic paints. I was browsing in the craft store and picked up a tube of copper paint. It was Golden's iridecent fine copper. It was love at first sight. I really love the rose tones in that shade of copper. That color was the inspiration for this painting.
Originally I was going to make this a multilayered painting. But then I kept looking at it after the first layer and it just felt like it didn't need much more. I added some silver in both paint and sharpie form for some scribbles. And splattered some of the silver as well. I posted the image on facebook and it already has a home!
It felt good to paint again after a long hiatus so to speak.
In case you missed my last post I wanted to share another piece I created this week. I used a piece of birch wood and payne's gray. I smeared the paint around on the wood with my hand and a paper towel. Immediately this image appeared! I thought it was a bit creepy at first but then I really loved it. I used a black watercolor crayon to bring out the image and shade a bit. It looks like a woman. And I can't help but wonder who she is . . .
I am sharing today over at Paint Party Friday. If you haven't yet joined us please come by and check it out!
