    In contrast to yesterday’s post, and just to prove that I have been creating some of my more usual bright work, here are the latest two – digitally altered of course!!

    Altered Tissue Collage

    This is my favourite – I love the softness of the colours and the textures which the tissue collage adds to the image. I created the collage using home made background papers, torn paint tissues, acrylic paint, stencils and some Krylon webbing spray. After photographing, I digitally altered the image using filters and blending.

    Problems with Focusing!

    This one is Bry’s favourite – he loves the bright colours, and yes, it is meant to make your eyes go funny!. I created this using acrylic paint, stencils and Krylon webbing spray, then digitally altered it using filters and blending.

    I’ve been playing digital with yesterdays images, but you’ll have to wait till tomorrow to see what I’ve done to them!

    Purple Haze!

    Today’s piece underwent radical transformation in it’s early stages. The first layer was a complete disaster – but it did add some texture to the piece.

    It all started when I emptied my pencil sharpener and discovered amongst the wood shavings remnants of lots of beautiful colours of water soluble pencil lead. I had the bright idea that if I tipped them onto the page and added water, I would get a lovely rainbow effect. It didn’t work – what I actually got was a dirty brown/grey sludge! So much for bright ideas!

    Purple Haze!

    To cover up the mess, I added a thick and lumpy layer of gloss gel medium, then started adding layers of acrylic paint. The first paint layer was just added with a brush. Next I added some lines and shapes using a variety of implements including bubble wrap, old credit cards and bottle tops. The next layer was a black outline followed by a layer of coloured gel medium. Some more bubble wrap splodges followed finished off with a healthy dose of gold Krylon Webbing Spray.

    I have no idea what I’ll end up using it for, but I love the colours and the textures it has ended up with!
