WOYWW: Mixed Media 'Beach Love' WIP


I'm back for my 2nd week here at WOYWW! I had fun last week!
My desk shows my current project on my mini easle.
It's a mixed media project I am working on with the photo transfer stage already done.  
It is currently on the drying stage after a layer of Liquitex gel medium. 
Once it dries I'll be painting in some more details in acrylic. 
So you see my acrylic paints all laid out and ready once it dries.
I'll post the finished project here over the weekend.
I want to do more projects using this style as well.

How has your week been so far? 
Mine is pretty hectic with all my work deadlines! 
Can't wait for the weekend though and a much needed vacation trip! Yey!
Happy wednesday!

I have never tried this technique...but just might have to now....at some point, some day.....can't wait to see the grand finish. Are you working on canvas board? Or stretched canvas?
