Outside the Box 2012

Once again I created a work of art to donate to the Placer Arts fund raising event "Outside the Box". This year they gave us a deconstructed box. I used 2 of the 4 pieces provived. Here is an overview of the project.
King Squid

I used a spray primer and chrome base
for the background.

Gloss medium was used to build textures
and layer colors.

I added bits of string and glitter to
create more texture and movement

The black printed sea creatures and
ear are photo transfers using
gel medium.

White and neon  green ink dots for
interest and contrast

 Layers of paint behind and over the
fish images helped blend
them with ocean.
