The title "Bust Loose" explains it all. After meticulous control and attention to form in working with human models in a more realistic manner I just needed to explode with line, colour and energy! Working vigourously in watercolour pencils, layered and sealed with Golden acrylic mediums I then went back in with oil pigment sticks to add pops of opaque colour! Finally freed of all the tension and pent up energy, I was able to leave the studio content!
This piece is a 10.5" x 13.5" original mixed media created in watercolour pencils, acrylic medium, oil pigment sticks on watercolour paper. Oil pigment sticks are oil paints (not pastels) and they dry and harden like regular oil paints.
