new mixed media

this is a commissioned painting done for a friend's friends. it is 36" x 24", acrylic & collage on canvas. i used remnants (receipts, maps, tickets, etc.) of their trip to thailand and china as well as photos they took to create a layered and textured collage. there are probably 6 or 7 layers of different elements, combined using acrylic mediums and gels, laser toner transfers, paper and paint. the first pics are detail shots of various stages in the process. the last three pics are the main stages of the process. first there is the collage foundation. second is the layering of printed acetate images on top of the foundation. third is the painting and adding of textures.

this is the finished painting (below).
