Mixed media on canvas
120cm x 120cm
This is a mixed media large scale portrait. I used glass paint and cerne relief to create the abstract patterns in her headwrap as well as creating different types of textures for her hair using a piping bag with an impasto oil medium. I loved the whole process of making this piece and has given me a new direction for my work, which is experimenting with different ways of adding texture and pattern to the surface of the canvas.

Hahnemüle Pearl has a smooth orange peel texture and a bright neutral white base, it creates really natural black and white images and offers vibrant colour reproduction and great detail too. The paper is resin coated with a fibrous feel. The satin finish of the resin coating gives depth to the image which combined with the texture and vibrant colour reproduction give the image the feel of an oil painting. This is one of the most suitable of the Giclée Art Paper range for mounting.
