Yay for Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin!
One of the things I worked on this week is a tutorial from Carla Sonheim that I've been meaning to try... Abstract Flowers.
I started by painting blobs of color on my watercolor paper (140# cold press watercolor paper). After it dried, I circled the flowers with white gesso, immediately scratching marks with the point of the brush handle.
This is not the best photo, but you get the idea.
After the gesso is dry, you loosely circle the flowers with pencil... you can check the rest of the steps on Carla's tutorial.
This is my finished piece. I made a few mistakes, but not too bad for the first try. tee hee!
I had so much fun playing with this that I've started working on more abstract flowers, including one in my journal. And not to worry, I've worked on my WIP canvases also, I just haven't completed quite yet. Perhaps by next week. :)
