makin' a mess :)

having some fun with wet mediums after a bit of a 'dry' spell haha...must be a bit obsessed with natural textures and patterns at the moment so I did this little 8 x 10 trio of lichen on tree trunks using modelling compound, opal dust, acrylic paint, oil paint and anything else I could get my hands on. Not sure if you can see from the photos but they have a nice little sparkle thanks to the opal dust ( which is suspended in acrylic medium). I also have started a small oil and gold leaf birds progress last pic... needless to say, my studio doesn't look neat and orderly anymore!
