1276 'Colour Play'
12" x 16" mixed media on 3/4" thick birch plywood
I had a sheet of birch ply cut for me to use for abstracts a surface to which I can hammer in nails and generally abuse! After sanding and 4 coats of gesso they were ready, it was a really nice surface to work on and apart from the weight an excellent substitute for boards and canvas.
I have painted the sides black so it will be optional to frame, I have used many different metalic paints and inks on a textured surface, using different techniques from dripping to dry brushing I finished it off with 3 small mosaic tiles towards the center, it was fun to do if very messy!
