"ASIAN MEDLEY" 11070, mixed media abstract © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Asian Medley"
This is one of the demos I did at the Westminster workshop.  The goal was to layer several different types of texture material, one upon another, in a geometric pattern. There are many different materials including printed paper, painted aluminum foil, black sand, cedar bedding, and a strip of red metal.






Here, I am applying epoxy resin to the painting and the matching backing board.  This kind of presentation looks professional and contemporary, and eliminates the need for a frame.

The palette for this painting is Zorn's palette of yellow ochre, cadmium red, black and white.  It's amazing how such a limited palette can produce such colorful, interesting pieces.

Love the look of this, and how you float the art piece over top of another board. Using the resin as a final layer really adds to the final look and that limited colour palette well, you sure know how to make them sing!
