I have finished another painting in my “Wildish Spirit” series ,”Yearling.”
It is a mixed media, mostly acrylics on a wood burl. My dad gave me the burl when we were cleaning out his shop a few years ago. I sanded it smooth and put a couple of coats of clear gesso on it to prep it for painting. I am really enjoying painting on the natural wood and keeping the wood grain as a part of the painting.
Here is a close up of the face so you can see the wood grain.
I also painted this sweet deer on a wood slice for my niece for Christmas.
I did a quick little sketch on paper.
And then I transferred it to the wood slice or “cookie” to paint.
I hope March is off to a great start for you. It is raining here today, so I am getting lots of ‘catch-up” work done in the studio.
Have a wonderful, creative, and joyful day! Janell
