The Making Of The Melting Mind

Melting Mind print 2

On Friday May 16th, The Melting Mind launches as a 48hr Timed Release fine art print. This painting has a special significance to Camilla, and while she doesn’t want to play favourites- this one just can’t be helped.

Camilla has some photos to share of her process creating The Melting mind, from start to finish.

The painting begins with a wood panel, sanded and sketched with an outline of the figure. Some paint is applied as guidelines,

Layers go into the figure in the shaded areas, and the lightened areas.

The layers of gouache may look improvisational, but work to a purposeful creative plan. Lights and darks alternate, creating radiating waves of colour.

Delicate layers of colour tint areas in the figure, creating soft blush and shadow.

The background is sometimes painted in the later stages.
