For this work, I reused cotton canvas scraps and pasted them together to build the base of this work. I used the base as a palette to build some texture, sanded it down, painted the mushroom and the grass, and then added some additional color using an orange highlighter.
This particular mushroom is pretty well-known and it’s been used a lot for its particular aesthetic value/popularity (ex. The Smurfs, cottage core mood boards, etc). I occasionally see them while walking my dog during the autumn.
