True colours (2) New painting

I have been working in the beautiful sunshine today.  I have nearly finished my new painting True Colours (2) Mixed Media on found frame.  I have added some stripes of oil glazes in various colours that work well as glazes as they are translucent.  These stripes add another dimension to the artwork and create depth (well I hope they do) Hope you are all enjoying the glorious weather today.

Back to reality

Here is my new mixed media artwork of The Green Man, Back to reality.  I have used pages from the book The diary of an Edwardian lady by Edith Holden for the back ground as it has such beautiful handwriting. The face is hand painted in oil.  I have used images from a book on roses and also a book on moths and butterflies.
