Abstract, Mixed Media Landscape, “Foothills” by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson


"Foothills", 6x24, mixed media by Carol Nelson
detail

There are wonderful moments that happen from time to time in the studio. This painting started with a random application of texture compounds.

Then, with a neutral palette in mind, I poured black, white, and sepia colors and let them wander. Turning the canvas in different directions, I was struck with the landscape image that became this painting.

Mostly, the painting painted itself with a little guidance from me. After I saw the landscape forming, I added some metallic colors of bronze and silver, and a bit of micaceous iron oxide.

Mixed Media Abstract Collage, "Forest Floor" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Forest Floor" 8x8 mm collage by Carol Nelson

This is another mixed media collage featuring the air dry clay leaves that I teach students in my mixed media workshops.

A cradled wood panel is an especially good substrate for this type of work because it is a non-flexible solid surface that can support the weight of all the collage materials.

Mixed Media Bird Collage “Where’s Our Breakfast?” by Carol Nelson Fine Art

Where's Our Breakfast?

This is a torn paper collage.  I love the way the various papers add texture to the painting.

My neighbor feeds crows at her house.  There's a lot of cawing around her house.  I thought of her when I painted it, and she snapped it up as soon as she saw it.

Mixed Media Abstract Collage, "Cloud Kiss" by Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Cloud Kiss", 20x16 inches, by Carol Nelson

I am wondering why this painting received so many "likes" on Facebook. The neutral palette? The various textures? The cruciform design pattern? The juxtaposition of hard and soft edges? The full range of values?

 I knew it was a winner as soon as I finished it. All the commotion on my Facebook page affirms that.

Mixed Media Abstract Collage Painting, "Summer in the City" by Carol Nelson Fine Art

Mixed media abstract collage, "Summer in the City" by Carol Nelson



I let myself go crazy with color on this painting. It has all my favorite hot colors. This collage painting has printed papers, and gritty texture. It is painted on watercolor paper, which is then mounted on a cradled birch board.

Mixed Media Abstract Collage, "Madeline Island Demo 2" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Madeline Island Demo 2" , 10x10, by Carol Nelson


If you like green, this painting is for you!

Of course you also have to like loads of texture (those are air dry clay leaves) and an abstract approach.

I'm not a particular fan of the green side of the color wheel, but for some reason, I am very happy with the color harmony in this piece.
