#18 Medusa's Curse - Cheri

This is another project from school. We were challenged with using 4 of the 12 techniques we learned.  So I used Sgraffito, Glazing, Impasto, and Scrumbling.  18 x 24 x 1.5  We also used color to bring sections forward and send others to the back.

another really interesting composition. I like the pattern the leaves make in the background. Also the range of values on the statue and especially the way the basket pops forward are well done.

I don't know the techniques you describe but whatever they are, I love the result. When I first saw this I thought you had posted a photo of a statue you had made! So lovely.

Thanks guys, First I painted the background and girl in using black and white then I put molding paste in to form the girl(Impasto); next I use a small painting knife to scratch out her and the basket(Sgraffito) I thinned out the paint and glazed the leaves and girl and basket; finally I use a dry brush to work in some of the texture of the leaves. I got an A+ on this. I am working on a landscape now (surrealism)
