Painting cellophane

Started a painting yesterday of a skull wrapped in cellophane. This is the second painting which I ‘ve attempted to paint an object wrapped in cellophane. Here is a photo of the work in progress.

Work in progress, 12×12, oil on panel.

Cellophane is not exactly fun to paint. I think this may be the last item I wrap and paint. I am glad I painted. With summer time upon us I typically paint more than usual, but this last week was not an oil painting week. I did some digital work in photoshop. I missed being at the easel, but as long as I have a creative outlet I am ok.

I also put a ton of stuff, oil paintings and digital work, on fine art america. You can check it out here. I also listed a few painting for sale here.

I will be following along with another photoshop daily creative challenge this week. And I will try to start a new painting tomorrow. Why not today? Because I got behind. I gessoed the panels yesterday and will tone them today. They won’t be ready to paint until tomorrow.

As always thank you so much for following my art process.

My best,
Emily Warren

The work is inspired by an engagement with play and making peace with uncertainty. I work experimentally, using a digital video to explore painting. I use sound and moving images in non-traditional ways to reverse expectations of horror and comedy. I am drawn to the whimsical nature of self-discovery. I construct repeating narratives, often depicting varying scenarios of serenity, silliness, and reflection.
