Timeless Beauty/ Διαχρονική Oμορφιά

Mixed-media on canvas 30 x 24 cm By Angela Zafiris

My recent painting happened by accident. I think that the best things happen by accident. I usually plan a painting. I make a sketch first and I try to picture how it would like when it’s done. This time I just let myself be more free and just let myself take a few risks. I applied layers of paint with colours ranging from yellow to blue over the photos from magazines, then I decided to make a mini collage for the center with the background posing as a thick frame.  Then I applied a bit of gesso  to give it a more foggy, haunting feel. The scan made the painting more vibrant than it actually is.
