Artwork: Luminous

8.5x11" Mixed Media on Transparency Film
© Copyright Rachelle Baum

Last night, I was up late working on this painting. I started experimenting with inks, liquid acrylics and oil pastels on transparency film. This is the *Luminous* result of that experimentation (click on the picture for a larger view). It is even more luminous when you hold it up to the light!! I roughly sketched the outline of the heart onto the transparency using several different colors of oil pastels. Then I used a combination of magenta and gold acrylic inks as well as indigo and burnt sienna drawing inks to blend the colors. I couldn't resist adding some glitter too and a smidge of black fine line marker.
I think I'm going to hang this in my kitchen window.
I can't wait to do more "experimenting" :0 )
