Hello all! Lora here continuing my obsession with old masters paintings in combination with mixed medium.
I've got for you today is a beautiful painting done by Antonio del
Pollaiuolo called 'Portrait of a Young Woman' that I have surrounded
with very modern watercolor flowers. Love the juxtaposition!
I am calling her, 'The Girl in the Garden'.
A detail shot of her pretty face.....
ATC Shrine Box and the Layered Frame-Aria.
I primed both pieces (well, three pieces as the Frame is two pieces)
and then painted both background pieces black and the front filigree of
the frame gold. After the filigree piece dried, I added a little
Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold over the top. It makes the gold pop and it
looks oh so much richer.
I am always trying to find the perfect solution to
getting different levels of depth inside of a shrine/box and this time I
chose to cut up lengths of a semi translucent green straw.
Easy to cut and easy to glue....
And was nearly there. However, I didn't like how unfinished the bottom of the piece was since I cut off the bottom of the frame.
Then I remembered I had those awesome Victorian Corners-2.
I prepped one just as I did for the frame and attached that to the
bottom. Much better! My junk store find of a cute little brass
candlestick finished the piece off.
