M is for Mosaic
I had really hoped to have this piece finished by tonight, but I didn’t make it 🙁 It is almost finished, just a few spots around the edges need to be filled.
It’s working title is ‘Ice Crystal’ and do you remember those Butterfly Paintings back in B is for Butterfly? This is the next stage. Basically I created the butterfly painting in blues, let it dry, cut it up randomly with a pair of scissors, sorted the pieces by tone, painted a small canvas with graduated colour (see below for an in progress shot) and then began semi-randomly putting the pieces together.
I’m quite enthusiastic about this technique and have a few other larger designs in mind.
But for now, not feeling the best (hence the lack of all nighter to finish this), so I’m off to bed.
Have a great weekend.
