Michael Holmes Artworks
Des Moines, IA
Each piece starts with a sketch then a modeling paste medium is added to create texture followed by etching the image into the modeling paste. After the paste dries the piece is painted with black gesso after that in dry colors are added using heavy body acrylics layering colors to get great combinations of color and added depth. After acrylics have set, the piece is finished with 3 coats of high gloss finish.
