Two Most Precious Things
Painting - Mixed Media Collage
"Two Most Precious Things" was painted for the Literary theme for the 133rd Dublin Painting and Sketching Club Exhibition. The brief was wide open, so I chose to illustrate a scene from Oscar Wilde's "The Happy Prince". I used a watercolour base and added paper collage with textured paper, and added some parts of the text of the story throughout the imagery. The challenging part was the angel, as I wasn't sure whether to make the face look real with flesh colours, or to portray him as a sculpted stone angel. I decided on the latter, but added some tear stains to the face to 'melt' the stony texture.
