*Detour Project*

Small Size

"Hybrid I"

This painting is constructed using canvas over stretcher bars as the foundation, then layers of acrylic paint built up for the background, the subjects head, hair and the face is blocked in with acrylic paint.

Then using the oil over acrylic rule, layers of oil paint make up the torso. The final stage is arranging faux plant foliage to complete the face area, making up a semi sculpture, mixed media semi-abstract/realistic portrait.

I'm really into plants and my house is covered with plants and portrait paintings so I was thinking about ways to get the two to compliment each other. The idea of linking portraiture and natural design is something that I've been putting into my paintings anyway so this is a different approach to a similar idea.
