Cattail And Dragonfly Painting In 3D & Blog Vacation
The latest piece of art to come off my easel is "Wings Of Glass" , my first 3 D acrylic painting. I've always loved cattails and of course, dragonflies so I decided to make them the subject of this particular piece. This painting measure 16" h x 8"w x 1 1/2" d.
The part I loved the most about creating this painting was the 3 D aspect....the cattails, leaves, dragonfly and part of the background, were done with mediums. The dragonfly is comprised of a (glass effects) medium and the rest of the above mentioned areas are done in stucco. The final product is a painting that you can see but also feel as well, the texture is really fun to run your hand through. To see the effects close up, click on the image above to get a better look.
Next on my list for the new year will be more 3D paintings and I got the idea yesterday, while feeding my dogs breakfast ( why then you might ask.....I cannot possibly say) to create a series of multi canvas - 3D - Bonsai paintings. Cannot wait to get started on one of those in January. For the time being, I'm taking a bit of a painting break to enjoy the holidays. Have a great Christmas everyone, see you in the new year
