Elegant Elm I

I set out the way I wanted to place the leaves in his painting last month (see post on 16 October 2018).

I used gold paint on the cluster of elm leaves on the branch first and set it aside to dry before painting the three individual leaves.

Once all the leaves were dry, I used acrylic gloss medium to glue the leaves into place and set aside to dry.

Next, I applied four layers of acrylic gloss varnish, making sure each layer had time to dry completely.

This original 8" x 10" framed, mixed media painting is available for $150.00.

Thank you for looking at my artwork.
