Mixed media cottage wall art with a twist is how I describe this eclectic fresco canvas wall painting. I think it mimics the walls of European frescoes with a bit of whimsy thrown in with a hand sculpted wren bird sitting on top admiring my work. I wanted to give painted cottage a contemporary jolt but add a little history too. This is a fun painting and a bit of an experiment using mixed media, but I do think it is a great success. Don’t you? Interested in purchasing this whimsical fresco painting and other delightful painted cottage work visit my shop Between The Weeds.
A painted canvas of pears is painted on a simplified style of fresco applied on top of the canvas. The hand painted pears have an aged look and a whimsical sculpted bird gives my painting a wonderful twist. A fabulous addition to cottage chic and farmhouse decor.
I mixed a glue and plaster mixture and applied it to the front and sides of the canvas. I sealed it and then added two washes before I did my final painting of the pears. I wanted to add just a bit more whimsy so I added my sculpted wren bird and placed it on the top to keep watch. The entire piece is varnished and to give it an aged time worn effect. It is ready to hang with a sawtooth hanger and the back is sealed for protection.
Overall it is 6″ x 6″ and is 2″ deep.
These are my original designs and I hand paint each piece.
