Wanderlust: still life

Still life isn’t really my forte. But the teacher was so engaging and inspiring that I had to give it a go. I compromised on materials; she used liquitex gloss fluid medium and varnish to add depth and light to her acrylics but not having any, I used a pearlescent white transparent-ish acrylic. I’d never considered using mediums to affect the paint effect.


Now this is far from a masterpiece but I’m feeling pretty chuffed with myself given it was my first venture into still life since the days of school. I particularly found the process for creating a background interesting and its something that is very transferable to art journaling.
