These were the colours for this week:
aqua blue, yellow and a smudge of hot pink ....
Because I'm still working on my big canvas with all the white, I decided to use this same technique for my SOC-pieces, so I can try out different colours, and also because I really like painting like this.
I completely forgot to take pictures of the first layer, but Wednesday evening, when I started on the second layer, I thought about it and took a picture right then. It's not very clear with the lamplight, you can't even see the difference with the table underneath, and it looks all orange-y, but it's all I have.
I painted most of it with different shades of yellow, scraped out with a credit card, and then I sprayed some pink ink on it. Then I made the drawing, and coloured it in with aqua. Nice opaque colour, but I still had to do 2 layers to get it completely covered. Here's the finished piece:
I wanted to find a way to hang everything together, so I decided to make their legs come out of the tree. Loved making this, looking forward to making more.
I also worked a bit on my canvas that I started in Tricia Reust's workshop on Monday and Tuesday. Put some more glazes on top to deepen the colours, but now I'm officially stuck:
Really don't know what else to do with it. My hubbie says I should leave it like this, but to me it doesn't look finished. Something is bothering me, and I don't really know what. I'll have to take some more time with this one. This coming week I want to work on my other canvas, and finally finish my mosaic mirror.
Well, that's it for now. Have to get my daughter to gymnastics practice now :-)
Hope all's well with you! Thanks for visiting me, and don't forget to also have a look at what the other artists created this week in Paint Party Friday and in the Summer of Color.
Wishing you a lovely peaceful weekend ♥ ♥ ♥
