Find A Way by kaiorton Find A Way by kaiorton
Abstract...must find a voice and feel my way back into painting. This is the experimental phase of a new dawn. Bear with me...

Odd combination of techniques I have used before separately, but not all together. This is the result. SO much delicious texture!!!!

Original watercolour with handblended pulverized pearl,gold, and silver resins. Tilted wet paint with wet on wet technique and loads of pigment. Baked and fan dried on 150lb cold press paper. Measures 18x 24in.

:) the red sunk behind the pearl until the baking and then it rose up through the resin which in part inspired the piece's name.

I actually prefer the thumbnail that is listed in Daily Deviations. I feel like you can see it as a whole better that way. Lovely texture. Very complicated process. ;]
