Paintin' Pretty - New Collage Work

Cherry Sundae, Mixed Media and Acrylic Collage

I wanted to work large, and here's a big piece - 36" x 48." Yes, it says mixed media, and a run-down of the specifics look like this:
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Pastel
  • Charcoal
  • Enamel
  • Gel Medium
  • Acrylic Collage Application
...and lots of sanding to reveal the layers beneath. Everything's varnished to protect the looser mediums like the pastel and charcoal.

Take a closer look in my Etsy shop (you can browse more works there, too!).
