New miniature Diptych

I have just completed a new miniature diptych -  measuring 30cm wide and 10cm high. I have used rock and sand on a wooden base for the work, with acrylic paints.

As a lot of my work is 3D multimedia it is hard to take prints and so I am in the process of working on miniatures of the work, plus other stand alone subjects for the miniatures as well.

Finished the 'Ferns' Picture

Finished the 'Ferns' Picture I have been working on

Put the picture into a temporary frame to see how it hangs on the wall. More details of this and other work can be found at

I started off with placing dried fern leaves on the canvas, then painted the whole canvas in grey acrylic. Then dripped PVA glue trails and added sand. When dry I dropped acrylic inks on and moved the canvas about to get them to run around. As the ink was still wet I added some multicoloured glitter to give it a sparkle (which you can't see very well from the picture) and then finished off the ferns with metallic green.

I am enjoying working on my mixed media art work, and to broaden my skills I have joined the Rosemary Hale art group in Derrington. Rosemary is a great teacher and she has been helping me develop my watercolours.

Here is a landscape from the Norfolk Broads in winter.
