Mixed media geologic abstract, "Sediment" by Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Sediment" by Carol Nelson


This little gem was a demo painting in a recent geo abstract workshop. I love the collection of "stuff" that adds so much texture to the piece.

Textured mixed media landscape, "Autumn Trio”by Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Autumn Trio", 24x36 inches, by Carol Nelson

I am conflicted about this painting.  I was painting over a heavily textured painting that was not a favorite of mine.  The existing texture on the canvas dictated the composition to a degree.  I was hoping for something much more abstract than this turned out to be.

I started adding color and more texture material to cover up and blend in the existing texture.

  I turned the canvas, allowed drips, and painted wet into wet, searching for a composition









I should have studied the first photo more. Now I see that it had good composition that leads into the painting.  But as soon as I dripped in the trunk forms, I was committed to trees in the foreground.

What I didn't do was to stand the painting up on an easel and view it from afar after that initial application of texture material.  Always take time to do that, even if you have to wait a while for the very wet paint to dry.

Geologic Abstract Painting, Mixed Media Art "Black Gold" by Mixed Media Artist Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Black Gold" 10x8 inches, by Carol Nelson

This is a demo painting I did in a recent Geologic Abstract workshop. The black section is Carbon Black acrylic paint, Micaceous Iron Oxide paint, and white.

 I covered it with a layer of Liquitex Pouring Medium for a very shiny finish. I'm always excited by the juxtaposition of shiny and dull passages.

Metals and Mixed Media Contemporary Abstract, "Metalworks" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Metalworks" 10x10 by Carol Nelson

I had to do this painting as an example for my Metals and Mixed Media class next week in Phoenix. It has aluminum wire pounded into a random design, and some metal washers, in the central goldish stripe. These were covered with aluminum foil pressed around each object, and then antiqued with Golden High Flow Sepia. I love that paint for antiquing.

The orange foil was embossed with a swirl design before painting with Golden Fluids: Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold and Transparent Red Oxide.

 There is also some uncolored aluminum foil that was antiqued with Golden Fluid Carbon Black. The two fancy patterned papers were purchased at an art supply store.

Mixed media geologic abstract, "Marble Palisade II" © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"Marble Palisade II", 12x9 inches, by Carol Nelson

This painting, measuring 12x9 inches, is a small version of a 36x36 inch painting I did a few years ago. The "marble" formations have a slight amount of iridescent pearl paint that gives them a glow when the lighting is right.

 Iridescent Pearl (Fine) is one of Golden's line of iridescent colors. I use the fluid acrylic version. I find they are excellent for adding a bit of shimmer to other colors. It's easy to overdo shimmer or shine, but that is harder to do with these paints because they are also quite transparent.
