Marta Harvey is a fabulous Artist experimenting with a lot of different techniques and materials. She loves creating all different kind of art,learning and trying different techniques with different media. Enjoy some of her gorgeous artwork:
This piece was created with two layers: background was painted with watercolors on mulberry paper, the leaves were drawn and painted on vellum.



This piece was created with many different kinds of materials, from hot glue, to maps, to antique buttons. I hope you enjoy all the different textures.



-Today's Best June 09, 2011- Original art was painted with acrylics on canvas and finished with pen & ink work.



This bird was hand carved in a soft block, then printed and painted with H20's (shimmering watercolors). The background texture was created by wrinkling a paper several times, then painting it and highlighting the "hills". The color was then digitally enhanced.



The original art was created by painted an old Spanish book page leaving the moon unpainted. The leaves were drawn and painted on a transparency and attached to the bottom layer.
