Russian doll

Possibly more work will be done on this.





'The Russian doll', 12 ins sq., card, mixed media


I really like mixed media work which uses multiple media plus collaged papers.  I like the collaged elements probably because in the past, I loved to make papier-mache objects....essentially glued paper.  

This painting came out rather dark and so I may work on the lights some more.  If I do more I will update the photo.

I was so thrilled with doing the mixed media, I went into town this morning to buy some ribbon scraps and more papers for collage...

Have a great weekend.


Bye for now.

strange, for some reason this reminded me of a dress I had long ago. The color and the pattern somehow.

I love this. The woman on the right almost has a fairy tale book illustration look to her. Great color choices. :) Erika

June, your mixed media piece is beautiful. The colors don't appear too dark for me. I love the little Russian doll.
