The birth of a Painting

 Sometimes people wonder how I create a mixed media paintings

And I have to say - they are all very different.... sometimes I use few elements and other times many more to give it the depth and texture I think it needs

But here is the birth of one painting .... it is called Sentinels and is from a photo I took in Adelaides CBD at twilight

It was entered int he Canberra Show in 2013

my studio and easel

putting in the sky background and drawing in the bulidings

The tree forms go in

deeping the shadows and clouds

applying papers

finished paper stage

Adding road and shading

Adding detail and glass bead medium on the trees
