Berries Are Tops!

There are several techniques used in this painting include assemblage, palette knife painting for the cake and bun toppings, and traditional blending techniques for the pans. All the berries are created off the painting and then applied to it. I also tried a new combination of modeling paste and tar gel. The result was a very think medium that dripped but held a solid-like shape (the berries). The same combo was used for the bun and custard topping but that was applied with a knife. Berries Are Tops!, 11”x14”, acrylic on panel, with a contemporary black frame. Sold.
