I’m once again entering the monthly challenge at More Mixed Media. This month’s theme is “anything goes + bright colors.” I knew right away which piece I wanted to enter: my giraffe.
Giraffe is built on a 3/4″ thick canvas. He started out as a pretty simple construct, and as I started applying layers of colored acrylic paint to build him up, I realized that some animal print papers and other mixed media goodies would help make him pop. Below are pictures showing the progression of his creation.
