Summer Time and it's Hot!

Golden Glow by Sandra Duran Wilson

I love texture that you can jump into. I created the luscious texture in the bottom portion of the painting using gels and mediums, like soft gel gloss and heavy gel matte. I don't worry about different sheens because I can unify them in the final steps. I also used heavy body paint to drag color across the peaks and glazes to get nice transparent layers. The entire painting was created on top of gold leaf. The upper portion has texture embossing and collage. Do try this at home.
