"Mixed Media Ant Exploring Hollyhock" - Second Installation - Original Neely Gomez Painting

Mixed Media
Ant Exploring Hollyhock
original 8 x 10
I made a post in June 2011 with a photo I took summer of 2010 of an ant exploring a hollyhock and next to that photo an original prismacolor pencil sketch with my interpretation of the photo and said my intention was to next do a watercolor painting of the same subject.  The photo presented here started out as a watercolor then I added some acrylic and lastly some silver pen.  Hopefully I can do the oil painting of the same subject matter before too long and post that so that they are somewhat in sequence.  The most important part of this little experiment for me has been in just having some fun -- and that is exactly what I did with this painting.

7 1/2 x 7 1/2 Tiles Painting in Acrylic with Pen & Ink - Last Week of June 2011

Found myself not liking the commercial design on a couple of tiles I had hanging in the house and decided to try painting over them and painting on a different surface.  All went well until after painting the second (on the right) I discovered that I painted it upside down so decided that altho I could paint over it again I may just display it on a small easel.  Tile on the left is an original and tile on the right was painted from a picture from local newspaper published around Christmas time.
