WOOD ICING ON WATERCOLOR CANVAS
Well, even though I felt punky today (woke up with a migraine at 5 AM and had to take some meds), I just couldn't wait to get downstairs and try out Mary Beth's wood icing (once the pain subsided).
I found a nice 9" x 12" Fredrix watercolor canvas and got out my very bendy palette knife and started with the tree stencil Mary Beth created. Love those trees!
I have no idea where this will go - crows in trees, a winter scene with trees - who knows? The main thing is to try the new toys out and see how they work using watercolor.
Here's a closer view of the watercolor canvas and the wood icing drying (it dries quickly so no worries for an impatient person like me).
It's a good day to stay in the art room and play. We've received another generous 5 inches of snow on the ground and we're socked in - most of the schools in the area closed. Sweetie is shoveling as we speak and I don't envy that job. We usually don't have to worry about shoveling and digging out until January or February but everyone's had a big dose of winter early this year.
Now, when this dries, time to get out the watercolors and think about what I should do next :) Stay tuned!
