Mixed Media Abstracted Trees Collage, "Sunny Day 2" by Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson Fine Art

Sunny Day 2 by Carol Nelson

This mixed media collage painting is mounted on a second board for a floating presentation. There are several collage elements including unryu rice paper, prepared tyvek, and buckshot paper gathered at a shooting range. What is buckshot paper, you ask? When paper targets are shot with a shot gun, the target then is full of holes. This is primo stuff for mixed media!! I risk my life gathering this precious refuse. (lol)

Mixed Media Abstract, "Golden Mantle" by Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson Fine Art

Mixed media abstract painting, "Golden Mantle" by Carol Nelson



This is a redo of a painting I did in 2008.  It's been happily hanging in my living room all this time, but I decided to give it a makeover.
The turquoise, green areas are all new.





This is the original version.  I think adding the complimentary tones of turquoise and green gives it a lot more pizzazz.

Metals and Mixed Media Contemporary Abstract, "Metalworks" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Metalworks" 10x10 by Carol Nelson

I had to do this painting as an example for my Metals and Mixed Media class next week in Phoenix. It has aluminum wire pounded into a random design, and some metal washers, in the central goldish stripe. These were covered with aluminum foil pressed around each object, and then antiqued with Golden High Flow Sepia. I love that paint for antiquing.

The orange foil was embossed with a swirl design before painting with Golden Fluids: Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold and Transparent Red Oxide.

 There is also some uncolored aluminum foil that was antiqued with Golden Fluid Carbon Black. The two fancy patterned papers were purchased at an art supply store.

Study With Carol Nelson at Art Unraveled 2016 in Phoenix, AZ, August 5th






Art Unraveled 2016

"Make Your Abstracts Sing" with Carol Nelson

August 5th


Color theory is a complex subject. Color and value are important fundamentals for every painting, especially in abstract work. In this acrylic abstract workshop, we will do 3 or 4 paintings, each with an increasingly complex color palette. We will learn how use of a color wheel simplifies the process of color selection. Tired of mud? Learn how to choose colors that sing.

Click HERE for more info or to register for this workshop.

Mixed Media Abstract Painting, "Billboard 7" by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson

Mixed media abstract collage, "Billboard 7" by Carol Nelson

My billboard series consists of collage paintings having random shapes, textures, letters, numbers and patterns. I imagine tattered looking billboards that have remnants of previous postings. Just thinking of this type of random juxtaposition gives rise to all kinds of creative possibilities.
