felt like painting •••

moving away from papercrafts for a moment or two...this is a 6"x6" painting i did yesterday. it's my interpretation of art-deco style painting by e.a. seguy, a parisian artist and textile designer popular in the 1920's. his work is really fun to practice and experiment with...plus some of his works are royalty-free, dover sells them as clip art...below is a picture of the original.

i used acrylics on heavyweight linen finish paper. I like the soft body and interference colors, and i also blended some with india inks to get more interesting shades. once i decide on a unique way to mount or frame this, it will be for sale on my website!
