Here is a detail of my portrait of Bongo. I am very interested in choosing a rich and harmonious color palette and using textures and brush strokes in a way that creates depth and a sense of movement. I incorporate a range of art materials in each mixed-media piece. For my portrait of Bongo I used a combination of mediums and techniques including collage, acrylic paint, guache, and pastels.
Once I have finished drawing, painting, and collaging then I print the portrait on a thick textured Fine Art paper and the art is ready to be framed and displayed.
