Portrait of a woman....
Mixed Media Painting on canvas....
Mix of digital photo collage / manipulation done by me..creating an original and unique artwork that was exclusively Giclée printed at GAP-Grafic Art Prints ( Certified Studio by Hahnemühle in Barcelona ).
Using an Epsom Stylus Pro 9600 printer ..with UltraChrome K3 Pigmented Inks on Hahnemühle Museum Etching paper 350 gsm / 100% cotton pulp / acid free.
Then the print is perfectly mounted on a streched canvas using gel medium as a glue.
After that I begin a new creative process in which I retouch the surface of the work using colour pencils / acrylic paints and also cover all the surface with multiple layers of gel medium and acrylic resin ,creating some extra texture.
All this tech/ creative work takes several days to be accomplish.
After all the layers got "mature" the piece was finished with a couple hands of matte varnish.
