explanation:

For this mixed media skull, I took inspiration from the Dia des Los Muertos makeup. I love the flower embellishments that women paint on their faces for the holiday. I was sure to use bright colors. The technique is one that I have been perfecting in my art journal whereby I lay a patchwork of washi tape  on a bare canvas. I then seal it with clear acrylic gesso and drew a skull using a Sharpie paint pen. The skull was painting with a mixture of fluid acrylic and acrylic glazing medium. Flowers and embellishments were added with acrylic paint. I love the result and hope to have the opportunity to share my art with your readers.
