Stormy Sea


today a new mixed media project, I love this art, because you can combine so many techniques, new ideas and a various palette of embellishments. 
I wanted to paint again and it should be a new adventure painted picture for a child's room, but without 3D effects does not work for me and so created a new mixed media art project.

I think my inspiration is easy to recognize, or?
Yes, Pirates of the Caribbean, a little bit of Black Pearl, Flying dutchman and a stormy sea with the Kraken and a view on the sea bottom.
 Flashes twitch above the sky,
see on the horizon!
used materials

Tips & Tricks
 how I made an old pirate ship

 I used a cutout from old magazine as basis
two wooden skewer, gauze
Fabric stiffener and acrylic black paint
Tyvek + some metallic paints


soak gauze with Fabric stiffener
put it in folds like a sail
let it dry
make the two wooden skewer black

use prepared Tyvek as  hull
I drawed some lines around the whole ship,
  make it appear even bigger

some details

The Kraken
my original painted art, OMG
I think he has just knotted the poor ;-)


more questions???
please ask me :-)


Happy crafting
