"Vermillion Gaze" - This mixed media piece includes wet and dry media on 100% cotton paper. The paper is a gorgeous turquoise with a slightly rough weave. This was a new paper product for me to use, so I wanted a piece that used bold colors and really grabbed the viewer. I intentionally made her a bit out of proportion to bring out the vermillion red highlights (gotta love the big shoes).
This has 3 coats of Sennelier pastel fixative coating on top, however, it will smear if pressed upon. I highly recommend having this professionally framed so that the glass and artwork do not touch.
