Back again, this time with my latest steampunk inspired Mixed Media Canvas. I call it “3 minutes to Midnight”.
I would also like to introduce you to a new character – Rolling Matilda:-) Found the upper part of her (head and chest) in a fleemarket. Took arms from a barbidoll and then made a body out of flowers and of course her way of moving around is with the mono wheel which was made with bits and parts I had laying around in my drawers.
So the thought behind the title is that at Midnight everything comes to life in this imaginary world which is Rolling Matilda’s. Machines, insekts, steampunk, lamps, air ballon etc. We are just witnessing everything 3 minutes before that:-).
Unfortunately it was very hard to photograph so the photos does not really do it justice. The size of it (50x20cm) and the colors were, it seems, a hard combo to photograph.
For colors used, check out bottom of the page.
Colors used – Tattered Angel’s Glimmer Mists;
Partridge in a Pear Tree, Vintage Brass, Tokyo, Tattered Leather, Coffee Shop, Dragonfly, Key Lime Pie, Rolling Tide, Rolling Tide, It’s orange and Summer glow.
To color the roses in Rolling Matildas dress I used Finnabair’s Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints “Green Olive”, “Emerald Green” and DecoArt Metallic Lustre “Elegant Emerald” and “Lavish Green”
To highlight everything else I have used a mix of Finnabair’s Art Alchemy Metallique Waxes and Acrylic Paints.
Metal pieces found in my drawers, lot’s of them taken from insides of sewing machines, old telephone and clocks.
Thank’s for checking in and have a wonderful weekend!
