Here’s my newest addition to the “doodles turned paintings” series (see http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=297401.msg3388224#msg3388224 for the first one and an explanation of the process behind making one of these paintings). 



It’s painted with acrylics and acrylic mediums (specifically, medium gloss gel and super heavy gel for modeling) on foam board, over a base of papier mache.  I had friends collect plastic bottlecaps for me for a few days, and I attached them to the painting.  I used the clear ones “as is”, and covered any colored caps with aluminum foil.  I also made small foil balls and attached those to the “clouds” as well. 

Sharp image:


Blurry image, but you can see the clear bottlecaps better:

Super simple, I know, but I’m happy with it!  I have one more of these “doodle” paintings in the works.

I love that, it is so bright and cheery.  Plus it's a great use for those pesky bottlecaps that I'm pretty sure can't actually be recycled.

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

Whoa!  I love the 3D effect of this painting.  And I love it that you are recycling as well.  Great job.

I see why you might call it simple but with the layers and the textures and the depth I definitely think it looks layered and rich. Very nice- and I love your tree one! I think it might be my favorite of the two because of the colors used.
