Apple Orchard Mixed Media

I had some leftover canvases so I thought I'd try to do something with some of the photos I took of Brooksby Farm. I made a black and white line print of one of the shots of brances and printed it on rice paper, then adhered it to the canvas. From there it took on a life of its own with many, many layers of acrylics, pearlescent pigments, and fiber. The result is definitely inspired by the orchard in summer. One can just wait for the warmer weather.

The piece is listed on etsy

Isn't it marvelous how we start with one image and the resulting work looks so different. The magic of layering and manipulation is alive and well in this work. I can't seem to get my head around digital manipulation. It's too complicated for my aging mind! I rely on good old paint and paper.

Glad I found your blog when you found mine. It appears we have similar interests.
