Land of Roots & Fungus #123

These pieces of art have a start with waste (single-use plastics). Except for the tiny bit of metal coloured acrylic ink, all materials are eco-friendly.

These pieces of art have a start with waste – single use plastic packagings to be precise. The packagings give the painting lots of structure and relief. Other than that, I’ve used old newspapers and lots of wallpaper glue to get a good surface to work with. After that I started the colours, in this case watercolour, gouache and coloured Indian ink, the metal colour is a left over acrylic ink, which I’ve labeled as waste (see my blog post about earlier bought supplies). The painting has many layers and as much drying times. In the cardstock shadowbox, also handmade, this painting can show its textured glory without being afraid to be squashed.
The work is protected with a PVA-based varnish.
