New mixed media girls!

Good morning everyone - here are a couple of new mixed media artworks that I have created in the last couple of weeks!  I have made a few of these types of mixed media girls before, but Ive mainly done them with their eyes closed!  After learning some new techniques for drawing and painting faces, I think they turned out pretty ok! (If I do say so myself!).  I hope you enjoy them too.  If you would like to purchase any of my artwork, it is now all for sale on my website http://juliemryder01.wixsite.com/julie-ryder-art/art-for-sale

Unicorn....

Unicorns seemed to be the flavour of the month in my little world!!  Ive sold heaps of them from my watercolour print range and also my jewellery range.  I guess that is what inspired me to make something else in the same subject!!  I decided to make my own papers using acrylic paints, watercolours and inks.  Lots of cutting and pasting and a few metallic glitter papers in the mix as well.  I think I will also sell them as prints, but the scanned image doesn't do it the same justice as what the original one does!  You can't really see the 3d elements of the paper cut up or the metallic and glitter finishes on some of the papers as shown in the last picture.  Please email me juliemryder01@gmail.com for any enquiries and purchases!

Texture, texture, texture!!

 Good morning everyone!  Here is a colourful, abstract piece that I had started some time ago, and finally, finally completed!!  I just love the colour in this one and I had such fun with the process of making it!  Ive just acrylic paint as well as metallic gold paint and lots of stencils....some of which were in the layers of this one.  It measures 75 x 60 x 1.5cm and would certainly brighten up any wall in your home or office!!  If you are interested in purchasing, please message me for further information :) juliemryder01@gmail.com

Below you can see more clearly the metallic gold of the dandelions...

Open Studio 30th October 2016

I will be having an open studio on Sunday 30th October as part of the Queanbeyan Art Trail 2016.  Come along and see and or purchase some of my artworks, cards, prints and jewellery that I will have available!! I'll be open 10:00am - 4:00pm.


New....Indian head dress....


I started this mixed media piece by putting the first layers down on the background (actually there were several layers).  I had the idea of an indian head dress floating around my mind for quite awhile, so I did a sketch first to get it clearer in my mind.  I then just 'went' with the colours of pink, red, oranges and aqua for the feathers....nothing was really planned, I just plodded along.  At one point I was really not 'feeling' it, and wanted to just paint over it!  However, I perservered and here is the finished product!  I ended up making its matching 'pair' that can be hung together or solo.  They are both created with acrylic paints, paper, beads, stencils and ink.
