Mixed Media - 18x24 canvas
I painted this watercolor of a large shell years ago and have always liked it but decided it would be fun to give it a Mixed Media Makeover. I first trimmed the half sheet to fit evenly on an 18x24 inch stretched canvas.
I looked through my stash of collage papers in shades of blue and glued torn pieces on to the edge of the canvas.
I mounted the painting to the canvas and sprayed an acrylic sealer on top for protection.
I love the final result and am happy with my Mixed Media Makeover. It is always a little risky to take a completely fine painting and start messing with it - there is always a chance that you will completely ruin it, but that is also part of the creative fun!
