This is a mixed-media painting I just finished that will be displayed in DT Toronto. It is 36" x 48" I love mixed-media, but this was a little out of my comfort zone. I wanted to paint a dress, which in itself is a little different for me. Then I got this idea of using a real dress. I wanted to take something real and make it look painted instead of painting something to look real. And I love the irony that the little black dress started as a little white dress.
This photo doesn't show all the texture and background elements but I textured the background with gesso, then added some stenciling and washes.
Thanks for checking it out!
