Media Geologic Abstract "Petroglyphs", © Carol Nelson Fine Art


"Petroglyphs" , 24 x 18, by Carol Nelson

This mixed media piece is done in a neutral palette. The earthy brown tones warm up a generally cool gray, black and white palette. I started the painting by layering three kinds of paper on the canvas: brown packing paper, red rosin paper, and textured wallpaper.

Then I added some premixed stucco repair (found in the paint department at Home Depot). I was interested in how the three different papers and the texture medium would absorb the paint. Sometimes you are surprised how a single swish of paint can look so different depending on the absorption of the substrate.
