My First Masterpiece

Well to me anyway lol

I had my first proper play with some texture pastes from the "GOLDEN" range, and boy did i have fun. I really wanted to to create a proper piece of artwork as i had been so inspired by the work i had seen displayed at a recent craft show.

Originally i was doing this piece for this months ART RAFFLE hence the Tree, but now don't know if i can part with it lol.. i may have to make something else for the raffle i think !

I call this piece

SUNBURST TREE

It's done on a 8x8" canvas.
I coloured the piece using some TH Distress re-inkers & water and some oil paints.

Close up the texture looks great {can't really see it in the main pic}
I can see me getting more and more into this texture lark, including some fabric and metal pieces, and definatly more canvas art.. watch this space!

Great piece of artwork Nicky. I love the subject which is perfect for the texture paste....colours are yummy too.
Now, we can see you've got the knack...when do we get to see what you can do with the OTHER mediums you have!
