Sunflower

Good Morning…I tried a different approach to another one of my colorful watercolor backgrounds. After I painted the watercolor I used black gesso to paint the sunflower and vase. When the gesso was dry I used Derwent Inktense Blocks to add the color on the gesso which added interesting textures and transparent areas. I had to add three layers of paint over the black gesso. A fun experiment.

Have a happy weekend.

It has been a busy week with childcare duties…so a few pieces of art from several years ago. School starts today, so I’ll be back to my regular schedule of making art. Have a wonderful day.

Irish Wolf Hounds are so charming.

A mix of drawing and digital collage.

Fiber and Paint

Many moons ago I spent hours working with fabrics and thread. I used this medium for my illustrations. This is one of the illustrations I personally loved and still own.

Here is the background for a new greeting card to come, I’ll post the finished image in the next post.
