A few more days and D and I will be sitting on the beach in Port Douglas, chilling with Margaritas in our hands. I gave one last big push today, but I could only manage to finish my little acrylic painting for my Friday class. I guess the kelpie sculpture will have to wait 'til I get back. It should be well and truly dry by then, ready for painting.
This is a composition I did of a small black slate totem we bought in B.C. back in 2004. The background texture was created using paint and salt. I then superimposed both the totem and the texture together, ran them through a few Photoshop filter and printed out the composition. I then painted this image with acrylic paint on a gessoed piece of plywood.
