Finishing touches

Painting by Vicky Christensen, acrylic paint and mediums on 16 X 12 inch hardboard panel 
I finally finished this painting. You may recall that this painting started with a surface heavily textured with Golden crackle paste. The surface is very absorbent, and when wet, paint will flow to all the little nooks and crannies. I got a little heavy handed with the darker and more intense pigments. My finishing touches were a drop shadow border, some very subtle Titan Buff glazed highlights and a final top coat of an acrylic faux encaustic mixture.


Tell me what you think
