Lookbook Series 5 : Gypsy Bottle

This work is mixed media on 17 3/4 x 12 1/2 cardboard. When I start a new piece of work I have the starting point in my mind and the vision.. or so I think! The piece always, for me anyway, takes on its own personality. From the beginning to the end, the energy from each creation guides me throughout the process, digging deep into my soul of intuition. Enjoy Gypsy Bottle!

Added layers of color for the background and then hand drew the lines.

After thinking about the direction of this piece for several days, I decided to start adding color. 

I did a white acrylic wash for the base on the flower petals

Added some details and a liquid metal gold paint for the necklace around the base of the bottle.

Finished up with details... final piece!
Thank you for taking a few minutes to look, I'm forever grateful. Know someone who would be interested in this process? Please share.
