Accretion

AEDM Day 3:

Flower center

A friend asked me to paint from a photo of a flower from her garden this past summer. I’m having fun playing with different techniques to come up with the perfect combo for her.

Flower experimentation: accretion.

Accretion is the process of building up texture by repeatedly adding layers of wax with light, “dry” strokes. The accretion here would be on the petals of the flower rather than the center. The center was made by dropping dots of hot wax.
