PATIENCE PAYS OFF - TWO



More painting.  For texture and interest, using a water soluble graphite pencil (thick one), watercolor pencils scraped off onto the paper when it's wet, mark-making with a small stick, and lifting up color with a dry paper towel.  

Still quite a lot to do to finish this and I may change some things from the book demo that she does - I would like to leave more white around the flowers at the top and right side...we'll see.

Thanks so much, everyone, for the positive comments. Right now, I'm just learning...but I do think I like the style - if I can "destroy" parts towards the end, as she does (you have to stop being so attached to parts, if you do that :)
