jan challenge 10

I had meant to do more for this one but once the watercolour background was laid down and had dried I got waylaid with other things going on. It is beautiful though and one that I suspect I will go back to and work on some more to create a fuller piece, there’s just something about it that appeals and inspires me to add to it.

jan challenge 4

Back to painting layers for day four. Watercolours, stencilling, gesso and a whole lot of ‘let’s see what happens’, oh, and a dash of payne’s grey here and there. The way the grey dulls and dirties the otherwise vibrant colours and enhances the stencilling is incredibly interesting to me and my favourite part of this page.
