Mixed media eye on a wood painting panel


Mixed-media-eye-on-a-wood-panel

So these days I've been painting my mixed media eyes on bigger surfaces instead of just practising in my art journal. This one is a 12x16 Derivan wood painting panel. It provides a much more rigid surface for painting (as opposed to a conventional canvas) and an interesting woodgrain texture.


I did the mixed media background first with acrylic paints, watersoluble crayons, gesso and stencils before painting in my eye.


This piece took a few weeks to complete...including time that I just stared at it and did nothing...*LOL* But you know how it is... suddenly you find inspiration, push through and just finally get it done. Now I just need to varnish and hang it up! :)

I can't get over how realistic your eye art always looks. And at 12"x16" it's larger than life, which makes it even more impressive.
