LUNAR BLACK AND LUNAR EARTH, PLUS SOME PRETTY BLUES









I got too heavy-handed with the Lunar Black.  You need to prewet the area and then just lightly brush the pigment on and let it granulate and bleed and flow.  (Sorry, Teresa.)

I like the flower of this one better than the previous attempt but I like the other leaf better.  Time to cut and paste? ha ha

Rhonda, I really love the drips under the lily pad! Wonderful!

Copy and paste applied to our paintings...now, to make this work without the fuss of collage...hum:-)

Thanks, Christiane. I did like the drizzles there and did that on purpose. Maybe I'll try to cut and paste in photoshop and see what happens! ha ha

This is very 'classy', Rhonda. It has an Art Nouveau appeal to it - Tiffany-like.

p.s. Are these Lunar colors new?

RHCarpenter said...

Thanks, Barb. They aren't new colors - Daniel Smith has a lot of the Lunar colors - Blue, Black, Earth, etc. that are great at really separating into textured colors. Almost any of the mineral colors (I think) granulate like this, too.

These granulating pigments are quite tricky, aren't they? but there are beautiful areas here, collage time?

I think I'll leave this one and maybe do another sometime in between others, Teresa. I could put some tissue over the leaf, too.
