Blast from the past: Angels among us from 2015

This blast from the past post is from Angels among us, an ecourse organised by Kara Bullock. A series of mixed media art lessons with various teachers.

The first week lesson was by Kara Bullock and was a painting of a Frida Kahlo face with wings.

I started on a cheap piece of paper to practice the face form and other things. I also painted it for practice and really liked the result. Too bad it was such cheap paper. I decided to glue the paper to an old canvas (40 by 30 cm) and added some extra things to the background. Here she is, you can still see the paper edges in the last picture, and the fold of the paper a bit. There are also a few uneven things in her cheeks because of the old canvas that is beneath it. Really a unique painting 😉 .

Frida: mixed media made on old paper and added to an old stretched canvas with acrylic paint, pencil, stamps and markers.  
SIZE: 15.75 x 12 x 0.6 inch

I started a new painting using the same face and now with wings like in the lesson on a large canvas of 50 by 50 cm. For this one the start of the canvas was collage papers as you can still see by the uneven parts in the final painting. Here she is:

This is my result from the week 2 lesson by Stacha from the Daydreamerie

A watercolor angel on watercolor paper. Challenging to make, I don't use watercolor that much, but loved the result. This is total watercolor, normal pencil and a bit of acrylic ink spatter and nothing else.
