Yay! New artwork! Goodness, it feels like forever since I’ve finished an abstract quilling piece, but it is a new year with new goals and new energy, and this piece is a simple mixed media that I was able to complete in only an hour (if you don’t count drying time).I used no paint for this piece- the splashes are walnut ink, and a cascade of modeling paste adds texture and ground for embedding my paper pieces. The flashes of gold leafing on the paper gives it just a little something extra. I did have to seal it with an acrylic finishing spray since the ink is not permanent and will run.
I really like the movement in this one, and the fact that it’s such a simple mixed media piece. It’s nice to be able to challenge myself in different ways, since a few of my other projects I’ll be sharing soon are quite ornate with lots of layers. It is also nice to be able to finish a piece quickly, especially while working on a few other complicated pieces that take a lot more time.
