This is the mix-media painting I am currently working on. It`s not even half-way finished and still requires a lot of work. I was inspired by a book called "Impression de la ville" (City impressions). The size is 2 meters by 60 centimeters (approximately 6 feet by 2 feet).
I usually don`t share my paintings before they are finished, but I figured maybe some of you could have some interesting ideas on things I could integrate into to the painting (or any other idea). Currently, there is cardboard, hard plastic, and light molding paste to create texture. I`m thinking of adding some pieces of small chain, metal and fabric to it. I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions?
It's fascinating to see your work in progress... I look forward to seeing how it evolves, especially since you say you aren't even half-finished yet!
Attaching some pieces of small chain, metal and fabric sounds promising. Perhaps you could add sand or some type of natural (or natural-looking) texture to the mountain areas. Maybe something metallic, pearlescent, or reflective in the water?
I like the way you made lines in the modeling paste to create texture on the buildings.
Can't wait to see how this turns out! :)
