Mixed Media Abstract Landscape Collage, "Twilight Time" by Carol Nelson Fine Art

Twilight Time, 8x8 mixed media collage by Carol Nelson

What color is the sky in this painting? It's hard to say, isn't it? That's because it started out light purple (Golden Dioxazine Purple + Titanium White). I wish I had taken a picture of it with that butt-ugly purple sky.

Anyhow, it sat around my studio for over a month looking ugly. Then, yesterday, as I was putting finishing touches on some of the demo paintings I had done recently for students in my workshops and private instruction, I came across that pukey purple sky.

I thought I might as well try glazing Miracle in a Bottle over it. What's Miracle in a Bottle, you ask?


Golden's Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold fluid acrylic. I glazed it over almost the ENTIRE painting. It is very transparent, so the color changes are subtle - unless it's over pukey purple - then it's pretty dramatic.

I love this subtle gold colored sky now. I've actually SEEN the sky that color in the moment just after the sun sets. When a painting is lacking in color harmony, and you just are stumped at what to do with it, try a glaze of the miracle color. I bet your problem will be solved.

Faux batik painting, "Autumn Glow" by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson

"Autumn Glow," faux batik painting by Carol Nelson


This painting was a demo for a faux batik class I taught recently.
If you look carefully, you can see random lines in green, ochre, and turquoise that result from the batik process.


In this example, the painting is done on fabric, the processed with wax, paint, and polymer medium for a unique look. I love the unpredictability of this process.
