thinking tree

I've spent the last while browsing through recent posts. Seems I haven't been here for a very long time. So, I thought I'd share a recent piece. Thanks for taking the time to look.

This piece began as a stretched canvas with acrylic painting layered with gel medium applied tissue paper and then photographed with a cut out bird positioned on top that had been printed with my HP inkjet on acrylic paper. The photo was then digitally altered using PSE8 and Pixlr. The canvas itself is still a painted tree covered with tissue paper and waiting my next layer of whatever. lol

thinking tree



Stay inspired!
Michelle

Re: thinking tree

Hi Michelle, and welcome back! I just love pieces that combine physical and digital work...it always seems like you're getting more bang for the buck that way...or bang for the time spent, anyway

Re: thinking tree

Obviously the same silhouette, but such a totally different feel...and everything else! Way to stretch those possibilities
