Multiple textures and layers have been used to achieve the desired look and feel for this unique piece of artwork.
Inspiration was taken from an old stone carving seen on line; I loved the shape and feel of the image.
The Angel is in a contorted pose, with her head tilted back to one side. The wings are rising through the resin, standing out from the canvas.
layers of metallics, Ink and Acrylics were added to the figure: this was then sanded before a final coat of metallic paint and 2 coats of resin were added.

Lullaby is a textured/raised artwork using artists putty, metallic and textured paint.
The flowing shapes were added to a stretched canvas and allowed to dry. These were then added to with additional textures to get the desired shapes and feel to the artwork.
Metallic paint was then used to highlight certain parts of the art, before a lightly tinted coat of resin was applied. The textures are raised from the resin, allowing for a reflective 3-D effect.
