"Snow Queen" Mixed Media on canvas

Snow Queen is a white peacock bedazzled with sparlkling gemstones and diamond stickles, the perfect thing to set her into her snowy white background! This piece involved quite a process, some of it, a process of discovery. I started this piece (like all my pieces) with an acrylic painting.My painting process involves layers. I start with a red underpainting with the design drawn out in black gesso. I paint all of the pieces – almost like painting a puzzle. I then add other media over the painting to add interest. Aside from the glitter and gemstones, I also added alot of white gesso dots, my favorite derwent pencil in "Chocolate" to outline areas of interest, as well as Distress Ink in Walnut to "distress" all the edges of my canvas.
