CREATING A WORK OF ART
mixed media on canvas
150cm X 160 cm
Due to the interest in HOW I create my artwork I am posting the documentation on creating „X-Strength“ here. Explore the separate steps!
After determining the artistic medium to use and what the artwork is about I started the initial background.
Creating the environment for the motive takes some time - I will apply several layers. After coating the canvas the next step is to stick newspaper and prints to the canvas.
Covering the glued newspaper and prints with acrylic paint and starting to create a visual connection between the separate parts.
Covering the glued newspaper and prints with acrylic paint and starting to create a visual connection between the separate parts. Adding more prints and acrylic paint.
Starting to fill the space inbetween w/ acrylic paint and glued paper. Next step will be to add the lead motive.
Now I am adding the main motive ... one of my favorite themes....a french Camargue taureau!
Working on the taureau motive ....
Have added some more black to it... created a black frame.
Too much black. Don't want the main motive to become so dominant. Converting it back to a more initial status... Notice the difference?
Done! I am letting go of it - perfect point in time. This piece of art has been completed. It is now ready for sale. How did you like the documentation of single steps? Any interest on following another creation process?
