Featured on Redbubble

I got my first feature on Redbubble today! My mixed media painting, Egyptian Girl, was featured on the Mixed Media group home page. This was my first experiment with sand. I used acrylic for the underpainting, a bit of tissue and matte medium in the background, sand (mixed in with acrylic gel) for the figure, and pastel to tone some of the sand. I found it extremely helpful to use a paintbrush to blend some of the pastel into the picture. The image was inspired by a statue of Hetep-Heres, one of the many beautiful artifacts at the Fullerton Art Museum in San Bernardino, CA. "Egyptian Girl" 15 x 20 Mixed Media
