Still working on it

I am a little over half way through the three panel painting. The three panels stretch to 6 foot by 4 foot. I am happy with the progress so far. l used phone book covered with gold leaf to texture the background. I wanted them to appear like stones. Then l started collaging flowers and painting flowers on top to look like they were growing. Hopefully l will be done tonight or tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

In the works

l am currently working on this piece. It is three seperate panels, each 24x48 inches. It is proving difficult because of my limited work area but l am excited about it. l am creating an abstracted landscape.

l have been spending time updating my website http://www.illustrationsbybrittney.com/

New piece for Growth Series

I am trying some new techniques in this series. I began by collaging different paper to get texture, then l painted the canvas yellow followed by blue. After that I used sandpaper to expose the yellow and some of the collaged paper. I wanted to conceptually "grow" the colors. I have been enjoying sketching plants so instead of painting flowers I drew them and collaged them into the piece.

I am planning on expanding the idea of growth into areas outside of plants. I now have 4 new pieces in the series.
