Wild Mushrooms Warm And Subtle
Beverley Harper Tinsley
Painting - Watercolor And Graphite
This is a carefully and subtly softer and warmer digitally altered version of my original painting, Wild Mushrooms. These simple, warm, earth-toned wild mushrooms are painted with a light hand, on re-purposed paper from an outdated, aging, yellowing and falling apart book. The paper proves ideal for a warm, natural appearance that compliments natural subjects, although it is tricky to work on. The original has deckled/torn edges, and would look good either floated or matted and framed. I have painted near the center of the full sized book page, so if you have the original, you can decide how much to show in the frame. This is part of a series of up-cycled art I am developing using old books and sheet music no longer in use.
Two golden yellow wild mushrooms huddle close together, near the earth.

Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.
The first recorded use of the term upcycling was by Reiner Pilz of Pilz GmbH in an article by Thornton Kay of Salvo in 1994.
