Mixed Media: Venice

As promised, here are a few of the mixed media canvases I've been working on lately.  There are several more in progress and I'll post photos of those later this week. 

The canvas pictured above, Waterway in Venice, is in the first steps.  The photograph was transferred onto the canvas using gel medium and then a combination of paints and pastels were used.  Next I'll add some texture to the sides of the canvas, before adding more paint, pastels & a top layer.

The canvas below, Venice Building 2, is one step further along than the previous canvas.  I've added a layer of texture around the edges & some additional paint and pastels.  The next step for this will be to add another layer, either wax or resin.
