“Fiona: A Cautionary Tale”

Standard

“Fiona : A Cautionary Tale ”        11″x14″ Canvas 

Acrylic, light modeling paste, Collage papers, charcoal, graphite

I think I put too much texture on the under surface of this painting – but these last few paintings have been purely experimental.  I like painting over the straight edges of paper underneath, the modeling paste got a little too built up and made for a lumpy complexion.

I had my own reasons for painting this particular subject; just some things I didn’t want to forget.
