New Mixed Media Art

Here are full views of the two new mixed media pieces I have been sharing initial sketches of in previous posts, followed by a few close-ups:

 Gettysburg Tribute

 The Beatles: Montage One

If the Gettysburg one looks familiar it’s because the original versions I created and printed were three separate works - each measuring 14 inches wide by 7 inches tall. Below are the three initial artworks:

Gettysburg Tribute - Day one

 Gettysburg Tribute - Day Two

Gettysburg Tribute - Day Three

Each of the three were incredibly fun to create. But even more fun was designing a roughly 2 foot by 3 foot poster that incorporated the three images into one glorious poster.

I designed a header for the top, then gave the poster a worn, weathered antique look by manipulating images of old parchment paper. I used a lot of layer blend modes and masks in Photoshop for this effect.

Lastly, here are a couple close-up views of results of all that fun:
