color burst project

hello everyone!!

today i am here to share with you my final piece in my yoga series. this one features me!

so i decided this time that i wanted my background to be a more subtle colour with the focus being on the actual chakras. so let’s get started with the show and tell!

so i started with a  few of the ‘warm’ color burst colours onto my canvas color burst

I then made my picture I wanted to use for this piece and placed the chakras in spot. I traced the spots onto my canvas and using color burst and a paint brush painted them in place

to seal these so I could put my figure and not in I used some liquid glass (http://decoart NULL.com/mixedmedia/liquid-glass) to protect them

but then I had another idea….why not make the whole background my chakra colours and so the adding of layers began!!

change of plans

i love layering my color burst and heat blasting it with my gun!!
