Tangled Cityscape

Posted on: December 5th, 2016 by Carolyn Dix

My “Tangled Cityscape”20161122_065745 is a mixed-media piece where I explored a number of varying techniques and materials.

The background was done in many layers of acrylic applied using a brayer. Teal, magenta and white were my favoured colours. Using a brayer is a ton of fun and very addictive so you need to be able to stop at some point and say you are done.

The cityscape was a combination of acrylic, pan pastels, and markers. Pan pastels are a medium that I will work with more sometime soon.

Underneath the city I played with a variation of Zentangle using markers, pencil crayons, and inks.

Currently I am working on a series of cityscapes delving more into assemblage incorporating various types of papers, metals and wood. Take a look at my newest piece in my gallery titled “Cityscape at Night”.
