Patina lady - Prima Marketing


Moikka! How's your week been so far? Have you joined the blog hop yet? If you don't know what I'm talking about, take a peek at this post (link) as Mixed Up designers are a part of a blog hop to introduce ourselves! 

This piece is something I created for Prima for a special Patina Paste post. You can find Prima's blog here (link). The inspiration came partly from the Patina Paste itself but also from the lady canvas I did some time ago (link). It seems like I have a thing for red heads! In this piece I chose the color because of the contrast for the Patina Paste. 


As Patina Pastes create such a beautiful texture on a project, I decided to make them the star of the piece. They are the only medium I used for the background. I treated the background mainly with the teal and mint colors. For the crown of the lady I used all the colors, starting with the copper and then adding the patina on top. 

I painted the base layer for the portrait with Impasto acrylics and then finished it with pastels. The composition needed something more than just a profile, so I added the hand later – Gel makes adding things so easy!

Thank you for your visit!
