This was created and achieved with a morning class by Finnibair hosted at Art from the Heart based in Harrogate on 1st June 2014.
As you can see from the imagery this means alot to me as this is my great great mother on my maternal side.
This tall thin canvas was created initially with the placement of tge photograph and strips of ripped material to create the impressionof a body.
We then placed a number of metal, plastic and paper embellishments to the top of the image to create a kind of headress and to balance it out a couple of items placed on the body and to the bottom of the image.
To creatr additional feeling with a heatgun we applied hot glue to create texture and emotion.
The puece was tgen painted with gesso to create a ghostly effect protecting the photo and neutralising the colours of the elements applied.
Some stamping with archival ink and 6b pencil for shadow shade was applied. With a dry brush blue and lime Luminarte silks were added and spritzed with watet allowing drippage to flow down the piece again protecting the photo.
Overemotional a fantastic name for an appropriate piece full of technique and love.
