Second Part of the Lesson

Working again on a 12 x 12 canvas for the workshop, here is the 2nd part of the lesson, using the tinted gel texture. I am in a global postcard group, and I received this wonderful picture of a Dutch Boat from Holland, and I was really so taken with the texture on this boat, that I had to do a painting of it, and I decided to give it a go with the tinted gel mixture. I made two different colors of gel medium mix, one a little darker than the other, and I had lightly sketched the boat on the canvas. Here is the gel medium layer: (you can see the postcard in the background)

And here is the final picture. This is a mixed media painting - gel medium, acrylic paint, Stabilo pencils, Micron pen and Oil Pastels. I put to use some things I learned in other classes:
