All Tied Up
Image Size 19" x 10"I've finished another unfinished project! I started this a couple of years ago but worked too slowly and my asparagus didn't survive, so I put the painting aside. I finished it without a reference. This is a study for a larger painting so I'm not really concerned about it being really detailed.
I attached rice paper to mat board with a 50/50 mixture of acrylic matte medium and water. This sealed the paper and makes it a fun painting surface. The rice paper gives it a nice texture and adds interest. I think for the larger painting, I will use a gesso mixture and scribe some texture into it.
