... I've finished all my unfinished projects! This last one I started a couple of months ago, but it kept getting pushed aside for something else.
I started with a watercolour background (I added a bit of granulation medium), but the main image is all acrylic paint. I do like the combination of the watercolour with acrylic. I've put this one in my Etsy shop too.
I went to the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition last week, on one of the hottest days! We went early, and changed our travel plans so we didn't spend too long on the Tube, and was that a good decision - unbearable but only for 2 stops. Just could not do that journey every day (though I used to in my youth!).
Anyway, enjoyed the exhibition but I don't think it was as good as some previous years.
Here are some of my favourite pieces ...
"Symphony for a Beloved Daughter 2018"
"Ice Floes - Peel Sound"
Mixed media on canvas
Made from wood, metal and costume jewellery
Copper wire and mixed media
Another favourite artist, this piece is huge. I've seen her work in past exhibitions and there are always unicorns!
"Eton College Library and She IV"
Photograph/Archival Pigment Print
Fibreglass manniquin, Dutch wax printed cotton textile, books and globe
Good time, but arrived home feeling like a puddle, and collapsed on the sofa for the rest of the day!
