Finished Texture Painting : Hidden Depths


 I finished another painting for the online Texture Town class that I'm taking.  Did I mention that I love this class?  And this is my favorite assignment so far, Lesson 7 - Advanced Gel Layering x2.  I am learning so much and loving it!



The color isn't quite as red as it appears in the first shot, more of a deep rust like in these photos here. 


There are actually two paintings for this assignment, and I'm working on the second one now.  Of course I'll share it with you when it's done.  I hope you are all doing well, and haven't given up on your New Year's resolutions already!   


 Enjoy today.  
Enjoy your own company. 
 Enjoy the gifts that you have been given.

Well darlin' I am duly impressed. How is it that you havent shared this with me before? I could not stop looking at all your creations! And such diversity! Paintings, collages, photos, etc. You are truly multi-talented. I like so many but, it I had to choose one of my favorites? I think it would be the "Coffee
Shop Collage". It's funny that you felt it was unfinished. All I saw was the beauty in it. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And my eye sees nothing but beauty. Love you darlin'. T.O

Ooh, nice! I love the colors and the fabulous texture. Your pieces are so rich with character and color. I will be exploring texture a bit in Tam's new M3 class and I can't wait. It's a bit new for me and I'm excited to add such depth to my art too. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog! xox

You have done it again! Fabulous, gorgeous painting! I LOVE the texture you have added to it. I always wondered how this happens, how you achieve the yummy texture.
