This is my mixed media painting from the workshop I attended at the weekend. It was at Reading Museum, taught by my former tutor on the Access Course , Cath Baldwin. The background is collaged, worked over in a variety of media.
This week the theme on Tag Tuesday is Farms, Fields and Patchwork Landscapes.
I have used a Gelli printed landscape this week as a tag. I have been drawing textures into the Gelli plate, then taking a print. The idea came from Linda Germain in an online course. I am still working on variations of this, with different colour combinations and styles. The landscape is my version of Tuscany, Italy, which we visited this summer.
The subject for this week's Tag Tuesday is Reindeer and Stags. This was a good subject for a tag as there is so much inspiration out there . They must be on trend at the moment, and so are we! I knew exactly what I wanted to do for my tag, which meant buying a stag stencil to get the image I had in mind. This meant buying a few more stencils at the same time. I painted my new stag stencil on a gelli printed background, using black acrylic to make it stand out. If you look closely you can see some other touches that have been added.
