Every now and then I have a bonfire, and due to carelessness some bits of what I’m burning, scorch, but escape. One day when gathering these bits together I decided to use them. It has taken me a long time to find the way to do this, I’ve tried all sorts of backgrounds for the figure, collage, woodstain & finally decided on this acrylic painted background. For some reason the fence pulled it together. The actual figure is pasted on.
2.PERSON AND BIRD.
This one is all woodstain, pine, mahogany, walnut, ebony etc. except for the white which is acrylic. Several layers of finishing oil, and quite a bit of sanding when I made a mistake.
