BLOSSOM WITH A BETTER BACKGROUND


I like the granulating effect of these colors in the background now - but see where I didn't carry the dark through the branch on both sides (a simple mistake to fix).  I used Zoisite Genuine with a bit of Sap Green and some Tiger's Eye Genuine (all Daniel Smith colors).

I didn't spend as much time on it as I should, because I was itching to get to the Open Acrylics and the gel printing plate. 


Last day of May - here come's June!

Background works really well. I'm going to have to investigate Smith colours if for no other reason than get to understand what those big words mean.

Those are lovely granulating effects, Rhonda.

Hi Rhonda, I like this piece, I've been in flower mode myself recently.

I agree with Sherry - these are beautiful greens - so natural looking.

Thanks so much, everyone! I did like the bits of darker and much more granulated colors. Love those granulating colors! Sorry about the big words, Mick! ha ha

Hi Rhonda,

I'm new to this blogging thing and I just mistakenly posted a comment intended for you to Carol Carter's blog.
I have been following your comments on her blog and was interested to learn that you had taken her workshop - I'm excited to say I will be in her workshop in Columbia, SC next week.
I love your blog and the links to so many wonderful art blogs. Thanks, Lynn

Oooo, that's the ticket :) Just a bit more, like you say, and this piece will just shine!

Lynn, hi! I remember you from Myrna's class - you will love Carol's teaching (she's one of my absolute favorites and I'd love to have her color sense).

Thanks, Pam :)
