BEFORE + AFTER PAINTINGS

I had these at a certain stage before class Thursday morning. I took them all to work on them in class and got more done on 3 of them.

American Lotus Batik, b
efore:























American Lotus Batik, after (just a bit more warms and defining values in places on the rice paper and then did the line work with black ink since you could still see the pencil lines anyway):




















Blushing Magnolia, before:




















Blushing Magnolia, after (using 2 fluid acrylics - Dioxizide Purple and Quinacridone Gold - I painted the background area and then warmed up some of the petals with watercolor - New Gamboge, and brighted some of the leaves with watercolor - Vanadate Bismuth Yellow).

Blogger is sooo slow at uploading photos today, I'll post the other works I finished in class later.

Thank you so much, Dawn, Deb, Laura and Ann :) Sometimes it helps to finally have a plan for these and go with it - plus you get a bit of help (usually by Sandy saying, Slow Down!) in class.
