Be Mindful: Painting from gelli print with foliage
I created several gelli prints using some leaves and small branches. These are two of the prints I made. I decided to work with the one on the right. I really liked how the lighter impression of the leaves stood out against the dark background. I added some gesso to create a stripe, then added some green diamonds along the bottom:
Then I added some stripes of color and some turquoise/blue background, plus some 'shading' to the leaves, and some silver dots along the sides of the red/purple square. Plus the stamped words 'Be Mindful'.
